Imagine this for a moment...
What do you see?
Is it mighty and POWERFUL?
Is it mighty and POWERFUL? The type of kingdom that is drunk on wealth and reigns with a sturdy hand?
Or is it C A R R U T M I B F L A I C G T S?
Or is it C A R R U T A M I Time B F Before L A This? I C G T S
Or is it C A R R U T A M I Time B F Before L A This I C G T S Fading memories of the great foundations of the world?
If I could go Anyplace! in the world...
I would go to a P L A C E filled with the N S O D R W E Of our ancestors
A place that ruled the EAStERn CoUntRies And H O L D So much of our dear tradition
I would go to GREECE
Just to see the great buildings!
Just to see the great buildings! Even if there are but crumblings bricks, I would go...
To see the temples that hold religion and tradition of the times long ago
What I'd give to see the Stadium of Olympia
What I'd give to see the Ephesus
What I'd give to see the Acropolis
It would be an A D V E N T U R E worth having
Just to hear the stories!
Just to hear the stories! Even if all that is left are crumbling temples with no worship, I would go...
I would smile at Frowning Zeus with his thunder
I would smile at Growling Ares with his spear
I would smile at Beaming Apollo with his lyre
I would love every Single S E C O N D Of It
Just to talk to the people!
Just to talk to the people! Even if they are not ancient, it would be worth it.
Just to see what it's like to live in a place with R O O T S so deep there is no chance of you sinking.
I would stay R O O T E D to the ground in G R E E C E An Ancient Land.
Just for a year, though.
Just for a year, though. I can't afford more than that :)
