Leaders of Man | A Poem by Robert Zumbrun

Caesar was a Roman politician
Rome breathed life into Catholicism
Constantine legalized Catholic churches
Churches supported thrones of empires
Emperor Charlemagne rules over France
Charlemagne creates cursive alphabet
Cursive writing grows literacy
Writing paves way for ordinary man
Plain men write books, gain political strength
Caesar was a Roman politician

Poet’s Note:

This poem is written using a new poetic form named Veritalifasm. The rules of the form are as follows: 10 line poems, 10 syllables per line, each line has to make a factual or truthful statement, each line must refer back to or reference something from the previous line, line nine must also reference something from line one, Line ten repeats line one (this brings the poem full circle).
