Somebody once told me
There's a statue in the Gobi
That's mostly gone from over the knees
Visage lying in the sand
With a sneer of cold command
Cuz the sculptor knew how to please
Well the years start coming and they don't stop coming
Empires falling and statues crumbling
Check out the words he left behind
On the statue in the desert that nobody can find:
“Wow, this blew up. Check out my soundcloud!”
"My name is Ozymandius,
King Of Ants!
Look upon my feelers,
ye termites, and despair!
I am the biggest ant
you'll ever see!
The ants of old
weren't half as bold,
or brave or fierce as me!"
@ranjit I saw this stolen on Twitter so I thought I’d come here and give you praise in the place of its original publication
