On a darkened mound
stand Obelisks
Awaiting understanding
as the light strikes
words incised
in hope

Lorded Ones
reaching for Godhead
stone imprecations
on the blood and bones
of slaves

Cabals of Priests
behind golden thrones
As below
while death reigns
over masses

These sentinals
Reaching high
for Portents
in chiselled lines
and immortality......
And when the world fades
who will read the stones
