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:
Hey now, you're a big shot, you think you're so big
Well I'm Ozymandias and look what *I* did
All that's left there is sand
Only shooting stars light the land
“Wow, this blew up. Check out my soundcloud!”
@ranjit this is incredible
@ranjit holy shit this is good
@ranjit this fucking rules
"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 This is good toot
@ranjit this is bringing back meteorites from English 1 in college
