All The Great Slot Cars Of History

by dbdevilliers

though caesar is a tyrant he is likely
well-intentioned and by virtue of charisma or whatever we
want him to survive the
knives and every time we read it or see it you just
hope maybe a little that this time he
makes it but of course
it went the one way
and despite the brilliance of the orators they
all died bleeding too
and everyone was just doing the right thing of course
I’m sure he thought he was very important
I’m sure they all did
all the tiny little pawns of history
drunken poets and emperors of rome
it’s very easy to feel very
very small

I am a car in a slot
a child’s toy
in very good company.
