Sunday is a grand day
Of celebrations and joy
We walked thru history
In a Roman convoy

What a panorama
The Forum of Rome
Anchored by the Colosseum
Held together by many thrones

The Palatine is now swept clean
Overlooking all of Rome
Where the emperors sat
Feeling strong and tall

What have all the years done?
To a society that ruled the world
Reducing it to rubble
And now it’s gone

It was a violent society
Self-centered on its need
Greedy causes flourished
Led by men with evil needs

Celebrations are deceiving
Many sedate the soul
Rome ignored Jesus
And now it is gone
