Torment cities

I’ve known too well the stark values

Hollowness of related abandonments

As their absence felt but second nature  

Where the microcosms of intelligence

Wore crowns threatening its own existence

Every time they stood to take another bow

As frail substates are marred with scars

Like galactic plots of the universal stars

Each incidentally named after their owners

Each microcosm is blood-related to the next

But the plebeians wouldn’t know it as truth

Predicated upon antidotal threats and myths

Ahh to claim citizenship is surely to be a fool

Having escaped their kingdoms… as a shadow
