On The Horizon

A poem I wrote about Mt. Vesuvius while I was in Italy

on the horizon

lies a dark hidden past

a different kind of party

where at least someone had a blast

it was a party of the ages

something to not soon forget

it was the day of the eruption

of mt Vesuvius

tucked behind Naples

on the Tyrrhenian Sea

a crater left behind

where there was once a peak

like an old grizzled war vet

from a time long past

the mountain stays dormant

and hopes it will last
