Ka-boom Towns

Detroit is becoming a ghost town. Outside Madrid an airport was built with runways and hangars designed for the giant Airbus A380, and the airport is now closed due to close to non-existent traffic. Chernobyl is abandoned, and many American cities are crumbling into disrepair. But this is the way of it. Cities rise and fall, civilizations rise and fall. Carthage has come and gone, Mycenae has come and gone, Troy has come and gone. And so shall we, in time, have come and gone. But there is always someone to take our place.



Archimedes’ Syracuse

The Greek Aegean states

Have long since ceased to pay their dues

There’s naught left on their plates

As well as Nineveh and Ur

Are gone and left behind

And in their stead I would aver

Came others of their kind

For cities come and cities go

Some live while others die

The why this is we do not know

We only wonder why

But life and death is surely part

Of Universe’s plan

When someone ends then others start

That is the way of man

    You have actually created some brilliant points here. I specifically appreciate the way you’ve been able to stick so much thought into a relatively short post (comparitively) which creates it an thoughtful publish on your subject. In my opinion, you’ve presented the topic in a quite thorough yet concise manner, that is genuinely useful when someone wants to get the facts without spending too a lot time searching the internet access and sifting out the noise to discover the answers to their questions. I usually get so frustrated with so numerous in the final results inside the major SE’s due to the fact they normally seem to mostly be filled with filler content that often isn’t extremely sensible. If you don’t mind I’m going to add this post and your web page to my delicious favorites so I can share it with my family. I appear forward to approaching back to read your future posts as well.
