Victories Of Kings

Victories Of Kings

Since Sargon first gathered armies of men
and marched along the rivers of the land
to overthrow thousands of little gods,
assimilating all nations in one empire,
then crowned himself god over all the world,
ten thousand men across ten thousand years
have lead huge armies to fight glorious wars
and declare themselves rulers over nations,
but though they feasted in grand shining halls,
sired generations of princes and kings,
and basked in adulation of their peoples,
they are now nothing more than dust and words
and their lives replayed on the tragic stage,
for the victories of kings are fleeting dreams.
