Ruins


An ancient palatine
resides among the oleander
a vile killer,
who subverted these foundations
upon which shambles now lie.

For years foes
aggregated together to overthrow
and revile this hedonistic sight.
With much folly and danger
failure was always the outcome.

Here the sun is
reborn daily.
Peace will not reside here.
Evil plays among the ruins,
a poisonous pill to those who would try to tame it.

On this slope with its totem intact
one can not grease the palm with hopes
of finding buried treasures.
At what point is one ever willing to die?
Some would rather face the rifle, than what lives here.
