Behold the mountains
O Man, behold the skies
Above. Behold the hills
So green, behold the valleys
In between. Millions of years
They stood- Wonder of
Now, behold civilizations
New and old, made by man-
How many lessons they were told,
before their ruin-
That they never heed.
Mighty they were so- yes indeed.
Carving pyramids, cities of stone-
Colossal heap of stones, Magnificent gardens,
Marvelous palaces here and there.
Behold now, where have they gone?
As mighty as they were? Where is their
Lust, where is their greed?
Answer me, oh gentle folks- I pray!
Weary I am, wandering I have been-
All what I’ve found- are antique trinkets
Laying on the ground. Collecting dust
