IMPERIUM

Back then, When
BC turned to AD,
A victorious triumph
Was a real big deal!
It was a processional
Celebrational state event,
That poems greeted and
What Roma needed,
And felt heaven sent!
Real barbecue!
Free bread!
And water flowing into wine,
Into the belly glowing,
Until, finally,
Slowing down the head!
It was one of the few
Times when
A Roman citizen
Truly knew:
That when the
Emperor succeeded,
The poor got fed.
