Relic

My empire is vast
Is going to last
for centuries to come
Said the mighty King
a few summers back
All is gone
since his death
Now there is a
Unnamed broken
tombstone
and a
Majestically adorned
golden throne
in a place unknown!!

  1. I bequeath unto this poignant work of poetry my royal and sacred seal, to be cherished by the receiver for all the time of my reign.

  2. Love it AB. My interpretation is like this:
    The high and mighty think they are oh-so-powerful and important. But as dust we were made, dusk we will become again. Soon after we’re gone, we are forgotten. So it’s really just arrogance, wouldn’t you say? Where are your values, oh King?
    Thanks AB. Food for thought.

      1. Well … why fer crissake did I refer to Shelley on any poetic matter other than this poem’s having a kind of “Ozymandias” angle …?!

      2. You’ve stunned me. I have NO IDEA what I was talking about. Sorry; but I’m really angry at myself, and I owe you a sincere apology. The comment I wrote bore no relevance whatsoever to the poem. HOW DID THIS HAPPEN ? Was I commenting on another poem and clicked in the wrong place …? Or am I just going senile? I am so sorry, you can’t imagine, AB …
