Venus Let Them Die

have you ever heard the song They
sang when Rome burned? 
they decked themselves in gold
and purple and pearls and lavished
themselves in oil, let their hair 
hair in elegant braids, and used the 
finest wine as paints on their skin. 

they stepped forward into the raging light/
that shown through the cracks of the cities that night

they sang of the lost
and the ones found
they sang of the rages
and beauties profound. 
they melted so elegantly
their bones intertwined
they say Venus let them die. 
it was not fierce enough 
venus why do you ignore out beauty? is it because of your own?
