Fall down

By Francis LPublished about a year ago 1 min read

Forty-five seconds were enough

to change a prosperous city

with daily dreams into tough rough.

Result of a new symphony.

(c) Wikimedia through Voice of America, after 06 February 2023

Once upon a time, long ago

an emperor set the basements

of a big castle on the go.

Stranger men called it "krak"

(c) Wikimedia through Voice of America

People in the dark, under walls.

On the night, sometime the earth shakes.

On that day, each certitude falls.

They take you by surprise - earthquakes.

Formerly a place to enter.

Now, this is an empty center.

(c) Mylène Farmer - "[I so am/So be I]"
