arrivederci roma..by james robert


repression found expression
and locked the inmates down
with fiddles playing gaily
as rome burns to the ground

it's a prescription for exodus
to quash the written word
as it would be to mother nature
taking the wings from a bird

seems the beatings will continue
'til morale gets back in line
sounds really dumb to me
but i say,"okay fine"

with this my 300th post
and last one at that
i think you've made it easy
for me to get my hat

i wish only the best
to all of my friends here
to net 300 poems
has taken half a year

i now take my leave
and get me from hence
as soon as my bags are packed
i'll thence be past tense
