Poem Commentary

I thought of this poem riding the subways and walking along manhattan which I based as New Rome. It is a brief commentary on the observation of the "new romans" worshipping time and the absurdity and childishness of it all...I might add more...I wanted to also say how everything in the city is really a structure of time and how as an influential city most people want to live like that now...Anyways, thanx for reading. happy reading and writing to you!

The New Romans (Working Title)

The New Romans

Clicks and Ticks to toll and bind

Chime entwined with Chime Divine

How Divine...?
To find
The Time

Entwined with every word and rhyme

Finite granite hour glass
The new romans live for grains to pass
The day's too short
The flow's too fast

The New Romans wish that time did last

Fleeting flutter sputters out
Tick Tock Ticking tuckers out

Who Knows when it all began?
When the New Romans turned to sand....
