Empty Thrones

Apathy has seeped into our cities.

The homes that bled love

Are nothing but deserts filled

With hopeful nomads searching

For hidden oases in the veins of history.

If the Gods were ever present

They have long left their judgmental posts.

Leaving the thrones of control

Empty and dust worthy in their absence.

Leftover relics for the righteous.

I agree fully! Nicely written. Just the spelling of righteous bothers.:)
