An Empire

The emperor of nothing
Holds power over all
You’ll see his rise
And you’ll be his fall

The emperor of nothing
Wields arms as he may
Leads fortune to gallows
And good men astray

The emperor of nothing
Lays his side with the rats
Leaves babies in coffins
Leaves brewers in vats

The empire of nowhere
Spans to and fro
Resides in the trails
Where no man must go

The empire of nowhere
A wasteland, a sewer
The empire of nowhere
A ruby, a jewel

The empire of nowhere
This empire debate
So be its pride
So, seals its fate.
