Who Built Rome?


Mortals of bony marrows, monsters!
Thinkers of truths that dwell in evils
Chattels, birthed in blood of vengeance
Trekkers of miles with warm fuzzies
Orators, soothsayers of future tone
Were they the ones who built Rome?

Men of shameful gains in reviving parlance
Those that fed throng with heavy words
Siblings of the gods, menders of souls
Souls that solely soulfully trod with soles
Labourers, harvesters of sweats; alone
Were they the ones who built Rome?

Fathers afar, who fatherly fathered our fathers
Tillers of ground; groaned on homeless holms
Ardent learners, shackled chattels, translators
Of the Holy books, victims of various apostasies
Kings and queens on thrones with no crown
Were they the ones who built Rome?

Those whose twin kids were abominations
Who served gods beyond their rivers
Beings whose laws dwell off their borders
With governing parliaments beyond shores
Stained hearts that freedom can only atone
Were they the ones who built Rome?

Dwellers of graves, egotistic freedom fighters
Living legends, witnesses of independence
Debris of severe coups, survivors of the wars
Vouchers of better days; impunity witnesses
Reapers of loots that gave our future to pawn
Were they the ones who built Rome?

Was the first Rome built in a day?
Definitely No! But, was built by agog minds
Who left their present for mighty posterity
For their Rome to become allusion for nations
Where then are the labourers of our home
Who shall faithfully build us our Rome?
