fall


why empires fall

all empires fall
because they stick
to something that worked before
and continues working
only because it worked before
but would never work
if it started over again now




at any point in my life

i would not like
to have my penis cut off
by a cigar cutter
to fall face down and
break my teeth on a rock
to insult someone so much
that they never speak to me again
to have lumbal punction
or to burry my children
while dying of
a very painful cancer
while my wife is cheating
on me with my best friend
who owes me money
