Empire

by Rajani Kanth

Dr Strangelove
at the helm
Darth Vader
by his side
Frankenstein
skulking
In the wings –
O the gods do
But arrive
Gluttony, long
The Holy Grail
Greed living
By the Sword:
Goliaths bow
To Davids, when
the Mighty Mouse
hath Roared
Time has come
the Augurs say
To sing of
Banishings:
Exit Brigands
And  Privateers
And other such
Vanishings
Caligula’s at the helm
Dracula by his side:
In Free Fall,
and Deep Decline
Empire  ships out
with the Tide
