Cleopatra’s Palace Is Underwater

Cleopatra’s palace is underwater
The Grand Colonnade submerged
Deep on the bottom of the Nile

Paving stones that had been
Trod upon by Egyptian royalty
Now just a path hidden by time

The fishes fight and frolic
Living out their brief lives
Where powerful rulers dwelled

Century upon century
Pharaohs and queens lived
Inside this glorious city

Now gone, but not forgotten
As moss and water erode
Their once regal home

  1. Now gone, but not forgotten... yet
    A time will pass, you can bet,
    When no man roams the Earth
    No men and not a bit of their memory
    is bound to remain
    Not even if the world then knows
    creatures of intelligence on a higher plane
