Feelings Of A Republican On The Fall Of Bonaparte – Percy Bysshe Shelley

I hated thee, fallen tyrant! I did groan

To think that a most unambitious slave, Like thou, shouldst dance and revel on the grave Of Liberty.

@bestofnatureblog

Thou mightst have built thy throne

Where it had stood even now: thou didst prefer A frail and bloody pomp which Time has swept In fragments towards Oblivion.

Massacre, For this I prayed, would on thy sleep have crept,

Treason and Slavery, Rapine, Fear, and Lust, And stifled thee, their minister.

I know

Too late since thou and France are in the dust,

That Virtue owns a more eternal foe

Than Force or Fraud: old Custom, legal Crime,

And bloody Faith the foulest birth of Time. ~

Life is like a bunch of roses. Some sparkle like raindrops. Some fade when there's no sun. Some just fade away in time. Some dance in many colors. Some drop with hanging wings. Some make you fall in love. The beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Life you can be sure of, you will not get out ALIVE.(sorry about that)
