Ozymandias of Tripoli.

Ozymandias of Tripoli.

Ozymandias of old burns sands in Tripoli,
His minions cower from the western sky,
full of inheritors of the desert rats,

Always the same allies standing in karma,
for what they fought for and gave before,
generous with ancestors bloodlines again,

Old names harken back to battles old,
gone and fought for the same ideals,
Tobruk, Benghazi, El Alemain, Tripoli,

The desert sand is stained with empires,
Carthage, Rome, and 7th Army versus Afrika Corps,
Aussie, Brit,Indian, American, French again.
