I met a traveller from a bankrupt land
Who said: Two vast and empty vaults of stone
Stand in the desert. Near them, on the sand,
Half sunk, a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
And fly-ridden lip, and sneer of cold command,
Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
The hand that built that and the heartless Fed:
And on the teleprompter these words appear:
"My name is Obamandias, Kenyan king:
Look on my works, ye Whitey, and despair!"
Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
Of that hope and change, boundless and bare
The lone and level sands stretch far away.
I’ve given up after yesterday. I am, as the saying goes, “Letting Go and Letting God.”
I only pray my demise is swift. Obama is going to destroy this nation. He still has 3 years to do immeasurable damage.
Season title for the last season of Breaking Bad.
Quite appropriate really.
Good morning, Jim.
May I suggest that we have a new forum created specifically geared for the gloom and doomers?
Maybe call it “The Summer Soldier” or “The Sunshine Patriot”?
You’ve misunderstood me. Ozymandias isn’t doom and gloom, it’s strangely comforting: “this too shall pass”.
A thousand years hence (if we have that long), no one will remember this fool.
Problem is We have to live in the interim.
Perhaps I did miss the point. But, my suggestion is still appropriate, based on what I read across the board.
Well done!!! Obamanandias indeed! A+ for you.
Love it! Always was a great poem - fits this 0 well.
It can happen again.
Well done! I will never be able to hear the original without immediately remembering the words to your edition.
And even someone doesn’t arise soon...meh. Russia went full-on batcrap crazy with this stuff. Didn’t last a century.
This is exceptionally good...
Thanks everyone! You made my day. :)
I like it so much, I’m printing it out in large block letters, to grace the wall of my office.
