They were
The children
Of delusion,
Young men
And women
labyrinth_400Dancing in their own
Decadence in festivals
On ecstasy naked
Covered in glitter
And tattoos
Dressed like
Clowns.

They tore
Down their idols
In the marketplace
And worshiped
False gods,
And their cities
And towns slowly
Faded like empires
Crumbling
Into the sea.

Columns,
Facades,
Temples,
False gods
And illusions
All sinking under
The whispering waves
Like a lost Atlantis,
Collecting green moss
And molluscs
And seaweed.

They were
The children
Of delusion
And the beginning
Of the end,
The lost
Generation,
And the fish
Picked their bones
Clean and they rose
And fell with the blue
Sea swell and were
Forgotten by
History
And time.
