The Statue of Augustus: A Poem

A poem I wrote 5 years ago today:

Dracul Van Helsing

The Statue of Augustus

The statue of Augustus washed ashore
a long lost artifact from days of yore
has it floated on the world’s oceans this long
past the many tunes and dancing jigs of a mariner’s song
under planes of war
and bombs galore
under satellites that track movement on the seas
and over subs far below the ocean breeze
image from an empire long gone
kept alive in a Vegas strip casino
with wine and song
Why hast thou returned to the shores of mortal men
Imperial god on whose death
to Olympus did ascend?
Thou once deemed immortal
who held the keys to a godly portal
now dost lie on ocean sand
far away from palace grand
thou whose word once made men shake
now lie like fallen monument
after earthquake.

The Donald T-Rump Song

Oh, let us drink a drink, a drink
to Donald T-Rump, T-Rump
the saviour of the human race
or so he thought in his head
for which a poor red spider monkey bled

Now Donald T-Rump thought he was Julius Caesar
because he was just that type of senile geezer
but he forgot his Roman history
it’s certainly no mystery
Julius was assassinated
dying very constipated
and Augustus took over
like a four leaf clover
while Jared Kushner returns home from Dover
to take the reigns of power
for it is the False Messianic hour.
