Empires

And now your empire lies in ruins.
In the name of the divine,
you broke a million backs
as they slaved
and your pyramids they built,
but sand has overrun
what hordes from the east could not.
And now your empire lies in ruins.

O Son of Zeus,
your relentless search
for the end of the world,
your lust for blood,
as you slit each throat,
rivers of blood,
as you breached those walls
that the Gods erected,
but look now,
now your empire lies in ruins.

For the pure race,
for pure blood,
the swastika etched in their souls,
they marched across barren wastes.
From the ashes of Versailles,
to the triumph of the will,
you built
a thousand year Reich,
but look now,
now your empire lies in ruins.

Life against life,
death, destruction, and pain,
a mother transcends them all
as she safely guides
that bundle of life
that will tomorrow
take life.
