Sunset At Knightsbridge Barracks

The sky goes striped at the Hyde Park edge

The Knightsbridge Barracks tower stretches

As if would like to dress its dull concrete body

In a Roman Senators’ purple torn from the sunset sky

Towers are like humans dreaming of some unattainable glory

Heroes at the Romus and Remulus nascent Empire times

Learnt at their own expense that the Tarpeian Rock is next to the Capitol
