Rome Burns

I love this man’s poems, and I particularly love this one, the mood and, well, Rome is MY city after all, so why not 🙂
Please go and check out his other poems too.

DoubleU = W

I will fiddle while all

about me Rome burns

I will find my slumber

while derelict of my duties

I will leave the post

to which I am assigned

I will stand and shout

down all authority

I will flout the law

and the system it supports

I will howl nightly

at a gray, jagged moon

I am of the huddle mass,

the disenfranchised,

those left without, looking in

I will buck wildly

against the system

and in all of this

I will not be alone
