GLORIOUS RUINS

IN THE ABYSS
OF ACROPOLIS
I ONCE TOOK A PISS

IT WASN’T A BLISS
PEEING IN THE RUINS
THE STATUES WERE STARING
NOT UNDERSTANDING WHAT I WAS DOING
THEY WANTED TO CALL THE KEEPER
BUT FORGOT THEY CAN”T TALK
MADE OUT OF STONES
THEY COULD JUST WATCH
AND BE OFFENDED

IN THE ABYSS
OF ACROPOLIS
I ONCE TOOK A PISS

THOSE STATUES
STUCK THERE FOREVER
OF COURSE UNCOVER
SEEING
THEIR HOME FALLING APPART
NO TEARS TO CRY
THEY STILL CAN’T DIE
JUST THE WITNESSES
OF THE TIME GOING ON

IN THE ABYSS
OF ACROPOLIS
I ONCE TOOK A PISS

BUT AS CHRIS MARKER SAID
“STATUES ALSO DIE”
TOO BAD FOR THEM
NO ONE AGREED TO LET THEM
FOREVER STANDING THERE
THEY CAN’T GO ANYWHERE
