nothing is for nothing

People of stone

the greatest empire ever

recorded on a dusty page

cloth of silk or tablet of stone

great victories great monuments

bigger library bigger cannon

until even the pyramids are humble

to a rocket of the science

of God is money

democracy pushes all the buttons

from church, mosque, synagogue

the blood relatives of Abraham

busy as bees building or

praying or destroying

monuments of people of stone…
