Void of Song

They mastered the earth
And conquered the sea

The black space without
And the impossible to see

Nothing was sacred
Nothing unturned

Their rule long and bitter
Over earth black and burned

They lusted evermore
For what they could not attain

Trinkets and baubles
Material gain

Their ending was sudden
But could have been seen

For nothing remains
Of what they had once been

Now the winds
Echo long

Over lands
Void of song
