SCRAP #3

S

7000 years ago when we gathered in cities
to worship gods
I was next to you,
a slight ringing in my ears

5000 years ago when we gathered in cities
marauders and bandits
I was next to you
wondering where the time had gone

2000 years ago when we gathered in cities
to watch them burn
I was next to you
remembering the end of the world

Yesterday when we gathered in cities
to light the fire
I was next to you
flammable and irresponsible
