Vandal Seats

The skeletons
of burnt out hatchbacks
skinned, in tatters,
melting in a summer sun
the incendiary capacity
of criminal mechanics
looting after a
modern city’s walls are breached
the Vandals racing
to take seats in the Forum
while the Senate debates
the higher ideals of Republics.

Somewhere in a hinterland
promises were delivered unsealed.
Mulling pacification seems preferable
with interceding mountain ranges.
