Imperial Material

Living with material objects

Could create a legal objection,

So pause…

For a period of reflection,

Especially since imperialism

Indelibly impacts realism

All throughout history,

But rather than seek glory,

Choose to reform,

And form a newfound story

On the journey of a lifetime,

For life itself

Could truly be sublime,

Which could come about

Through a careful usage of time,

And then make art

That imitates life,

Much like a poetic rhyme,

As a part of truly real realism
