Rome

We are Rome.
Huge, unhinged
Powerful, unfettered
Spread too far and too wide
Lost in our own trappings
Too blind to foresee
Our own demise
We are Rome.
A great empire
The likes of which
The world has never seen
Spread to the four corners
Known by all the world
Except those who
Live right here
We are Rome.
Going along faster
Than we can maintain
Pushing, ever pushing out
Against our fellow earthlings
Never questioning ourselves
Nor what we’re capable of
And not capable of
We run far too fast
And never slow
Never listen
We are Rome.

Inspired by the words of Gregg Popovich.
