Poem for Half an Empire

The Byzantines were Romans, too
Roman Legions, tried and true
They didn't ask what happened to
Them when they met their Waterloo
The Rubicon they crossed through time
Was not their folly or their crime
When their Empire broke in twain
There were no songs of sad refrain;
Except perhaps they were frustrated
To be confused with "complicated."
