empire

how long

must I

wait

watch as

others crawl

imperium et gloria

climb

or catapult

to the top

as I stay

trapped

in this middle cage

this empty

nothingness

comfort

is not good

pain

is pointless

if there is no

power

to gain

the republic

falls

I watch

and learn

as I build

patiently

brick by brick

inch by inch

piece by piece

the jigsaw

of my

empire
