Came home from Rome Quintessential

Don’t kowtow to a person
Bow to a King
Be a yes man in another man’s dream
Part of me wants the other part to knell
Authoritarian, another word for Dictator
Happens in the blink of an eye
One day you’re free, next day you die
My grandfather came here with ten dollars in his pocket
The American Dream turned inside out
“Tear down this wall”, or build one to keep people out
You can’t prove God doesn’t exist
Walkin’ the river
Maidens and their dogs
Water taxi goin’ up and down
The homeless too occupyin’ benches to keep their cool
Jasmin trees in full bloom
Came home from Rome fellin’ kinda’ empty
Like I left somethin’ behind
