The Fall of Rome

The Fall of Rome was caused by
rings of stain in coffee mugs and
cow fat seeping into grout, yes,
the city burned and tumbled
due to grease-residue on the rafters
and black mold in the walls,
The Fall of Rome was tragic,
to some more than others and
to me least of all,
for some things must be burned and
some traditions will die screaming;
and some future hopes are
yet to be born,
but destined to someday
kill us and be killed themselves.
