Bend

#Fowc #Bend

They played with the roman road

so the horses and carts

didn’t bump into the temples

shrines and colosseum

The long straight road

now looked a lot like

Cleopatra’s serpent

as it bent and turned and coiled

But with progress, came problems

for as the engine replaced horse

the nobles noticed in their new chariots

they couldn’t see what was round the bend
