Poem: All Romes Lead to the Road 20181116-0156

Good night and thank you for listening,
All Romes lead to the road,
Common language somehow upsetting,
The balance and the wind shuffle;

Good night and early morning travels
Vaguely saying the measures of mile
Twisting haphazardly with Meter, Rhyme
And dusty Feet marching route-step;

In cadence, exercise! I hate you and
You hate me! Dirty, stinking privates
Won't brush their teeth! Laughing at
The patience of the Grand Narcissist;

Good night and say goodbye to games
Played on the playa with the Devil
Bending his knee to publicly pray and
Say: "Have a blessed day." As you vomit;

Good night and listen for the vomitorium
To hand over fist fulls of fools feeling
Frothy fantastic fetes for fabricated
Nonsensual desires landing in tepid waters;

Over the river and through the woods
With difficult breathing and difficult
Breathing for fantastic difficult roads
And difficult breathing with difficult breathing;

All roads Roman and one man knows
That roads and roads and roads and roads
All Romes end up as roads and roads
Pass through without ever saying goodbye.

"All Romes Lead to the Road" is a poem written by Alexander Nuttall on 2018116-0156 EST (-5 GMT). All Romes are fantastic cities that eventually become bypasses for the marching elite or the poor foot soldiers who follow them. This is pessimistic. On the other hand, the sinister one, this is just a truth that the fantasy is a driven one that copies many others. It is impermanent and it will end.
