L’état, c’est moi
–a found poem
Louis lured them to his court,
corrupted them with gambling,
exhausted them with dissipation,
made their destinies dependent
on their capacity to please him.
His reign lasted 72 years.

Love this. History & implication.
This packs a punch! History condensed, but my imagination stretches beyond the horizon with this one. <3
was this literally a found poem?
après moi, le deluge.
