Shelley`s sonnet has outlasted empires: witnessing the deaths of boastful tyrants who follow each one upon the other, their egotistical paranoia cut down like sheaths of corn, and the demise of the British imperialism he so ardently despised. The pursuit of power and dominion over others is a fleeting affair, the span of a man`s days, and nothing more; even the iron of empires which exist by the heart beats of generations of tyrants, will eventually rust and dissolve back to it`s base elements…….To leave nothing but a crumbling statue in an empty desert. napsphx
