“And do you know another thing, Arthur? Life is too bitter already, without territories and wars and noble feuds.”

  1. These wars and feuds have been going on that long, that mother nature has had time to create a super-bug, to put a cease to everything……..

      • I found it on Pixabay doing a search for Arthur + Excalibur. Took a bit to find the name, artist and location.

        Shelley’s Ozymandias – I had to look that up. You’re right. It’s so perfect! It’s such a great poem.

        I met a traveller from an antique land,
        Who said—“Two vast and trunkless legs of stone
        Stand in the desert. . . . Near them, on the sand,
        Half sunk a shattered visage lies, whose frown,
        And wrinkled lip, and sneer of cold command,
        Tell that its sculptor well those passions read
        Which yet survive, stamped on these lifeless things,
        The hand that mocked them, and the heart that fed;
        And on the pedestal, these words appear:
        My name is Ozymandias, King of Kings;
        Look on my Works, ye Mighty, and despair!
        Nothing beside remains. Round the decay
        Of that colossal Wreck, boundless and bare
        The lone and level sands stretch far away.”
