The Great Fall (day 397)

When the Romans fell
And all hope around them
Sunk into the unborn sea
When the prophesies that told
How the maidens of high
Who oracle’d the destinies would die
When the clouds that held
The towers within
Broke, and the rain did fall
Causing widespread panic
Zeus, the champion of gods
Shook and settled
Followed his instinct
Into the madness
Resting his sadness
Upon the grounds nevermore
