The Call of Ancient Cities

The trumpet has sounded...the gears have turned...industries making democratic decisions among the various citizens of the state,

United States here come Athens...ancient democracy on a civil scale...Pericles made the move to great wonders...Obama will as well,

Oh Great Britain...your monarchy of imperialistic standards...pushing for the champion pot of golf...meet Persia...Xerxes was much like you,

Ireland...Scotland...independent movements that led revolts against neighboring countries...Remember William Wallace.



Let us pass by the political motives...Judaism...Israel and it's King Saul...David....Solomon...meet Telaviv....missiles away oh Palestine,

Crimean war...Russia and it's feuds...Lakes oh Sea and Rivers alike...island warfare by Food for thought needs...let the territories go,

Islam...Abraham show your face oh Ismael...Jacob make your way to the alter...let the wars begin through timeless struggles,

The world has gone round...ramparts of castle destruction...throw the rams against each other...christian faith...Islamic revenge.

I beg of the world to notice the past trends...touch on the lost souls that could have shown us the way,

Has it not been for them that we had a republic today...Roman practicality...military superiority,

But has that same function be found us a rock and a hard place...a totalitarian world leadership with economic failure,

Could the walls be crumbled...it must only stand but for a day and no more...culture will diminish almost indefinitely.



Can we just see where this is leading us...united countries all leading and begging for a chance to prove themselves,

Culture falls...quarrels succeed...the passion fails...the numbness conceives a child of war unlike anything we have seen before,

It is well on it's way...but we allow for the continual motion that the rock has begun to roll...violent downturn of the mountain,

The landslide has started...Pompeii has shown it...we will experience it as a whole...it has begun...will you hear the call of the ancient cities...?

A sad reality. Are we sealing our fate?

We could be, but what exactly is fate?
