The Unbuilt Temple, A Poem

by William Skink

While Friday is a day for news dumping, and Monday is a day for officially getting to that dumped news, today is Saturday, and Saturdays are days here at RD I have dedicated to art and poetry.

So, with that in mind, here is the beginning of a poem I was inspired to start writing this morning after news dump Friday. Enjoy!

THE UNBUILT TEMPLE (a work in progress)

your temple, my Lord, cannot be built
the vaults are depleted
and the workers will wilt
once they discover their gold painted coins
hold no more value
then why should they join
our elite order of cultural priests
who horde real gold
and enjoy secret feasts?
