When Rome fell at my feet
All I did was tip my head back
And laugh.

When the flames engulfed Pompeii
I drank the last glass of water
And stood to the side.

When Troy
Was attacked by a soldier-filled horse,
I turned and faced away.

When Egypt was
Being plagued by Moses
I made popcorn.

When the Mongols invaded China
I sat back
And let them be.

When England took a hold of the poor nations of India, Kenya and Australia
I just let it go
And let it happen.
