Lost Deities
By Teddy Kimathi


A gigantic statue of Buddha
slowly melts in a city’s outskirts in Thailand.

Lady Liberty slowly drowns into the Atlantic,
as New Yorkers writhe in terror.

Gods’ heads in the Easter Islands roll away
like marbles into the ocean.

Man’s history has been erased,
after destroying symbols that immortalized
his rich, historic past.

Gigantic, flaming mushrooms have carried
man’s history with them.
