C ome from ancient dynasties down trails of trial and error,
R eaching back to old bequests for every trick and trade,
E ach living thing has stood the test of time and fickle tide
A nd breathes beneath this brightened moon – feels a heightened terror
T hat one alive, who crowned himself King of All that Moves,
U pset sweet nature’s applecart and built a gilt machine.
R oads go on forever. Monarchs love a change of scene.
E ven their commandments state that travelling improves.
