Caesar and the Statue Alexander by Mishima Strange published on 2013/07/31 23:28:44 +0000 I've walked along the pantheons, made strangers fear my name. Up a ladder, through rings of fire, I've achieved all my aims. But still an ache inside persists, I'm still a mortal man... Not like you, hero of history, falling upon my knees, the years were better to you than they'd ever been to me. But I know one day for sure that everyone will know my name....Statues of me will keep yours in the shade. Accolades and long parades are small compared to this, you've painted your name across the map and signed it with your fist, but will you ever change the world like my peers all predict? Down they go, oh eons ago, statues fall to dust, away the minds, the memories, the climes, from my hand will spring modern--Down they go, oh eons ago, still you're left with this, away the minds, the memories, the climes, from my hand will spring modern times.
