 Grandeur Of Melancholy

Roman Guard

What is it you must protect
from a shield behind you.

The sword to slash at
like a poet with words
to wield; challenge
every convention.

But Rome wasn't built 
on this attack, attack,
everything you see.

Maybe people will
see the Roman guard
as a protector, but
there are two sides
to every story.

Maybe we like the idea,
what sticks doesn't click.

Or that maybe
you can be 
also wrong.
And not see it.
