Thistles and Vines

Fire-Breathing-in-Real-Time“…For I would hurl your cities down
And I would break your shrines
And give the site of every town
To thistles and to vines.

Higher the walls of Nineveh
And prouder Babel’s spires-
I bellowed from the desert way-
They crumbled in my fires…”

-from, A Word From The Outer Dark, by Robert E. Howard

*If I’d written this I’d’ve written “wilderness” instead of “desert way.”
