National Poetry Month Day 1: Majestic Empire

Today begins National Poetry Month and during April, I will once again write (or attempt to write) a poem a day. Here is my first poem to kick things off.

Majestic Empire

 

From the ashes of old,

a republic slain

in blood and hubris

to rise anew

on columns of marble

 

Yet, in the shadows

of remnants, haunting

the foundation of ambition

cracked the stone

with an overreaching conceit
