Follow the purple umbrella

(the color is not significant),

you’ve paid for the tour,

now enter museums of splendor,

magnificence,

historical importance,

indeed,

museums of decadence.

Look at the gold!

Look at the art!

Look at the opulence!

Look at the young prince’s carriage, how ornate, how neat,

it was pulled around the palace grounds by merino sheep.

Look at the wealth captured by the few,

adulated and celebrated by the many,

used to perpetuate the cycle,

Habsburgs, haves, and have-nots.

I sigh,

and close my eyes

Continue.

More of same.

Accoutrements of wealth and fame.

A long and twisted walk through the hallways.

But wait, what’s this?

Oh,

here in a dark corner,

is a small room with mementos from one of many wars,

understated chamber of horrors…

Indeed, how many died,

in the name of lies

and bloody war,

for the glory of empire

and emperor?

 …
