Pompeii

We moved inexorably towards idiocracy we slipped without grip towards dependency We prayed filled with nothing but false ecstasy we crept towards our death instinctively We lived as slaves fully and intentionally We are Pompeii, Herculaneum the ones who filled the stadium Called for pitiless blood to warmly run worshiped bearded men and starry sun causation, ruination living and dead

Another outstanding piece with strong phrasing and blistering imagery. Like 'Olympus' you are displaying your classical roots! Keith
