was there ever anything here

was there not a city

a city ruled over

by an addled king


whose throne of broken dreams

and empty promises

who liars throne

upon which the one

who said they would always be here

no longer exists


as everything has a beginning

everything has an end


the world is always ending

the world is always being reborn


maybe one day

year

decade

century

millennia

the addled king will return


but know it now

today

is not

that day
