Builders of Empires

Men of science
Builders of empires
Politicians to rival
The great ones of past ages

Builders of teams
Basking in the sun of recognition
Built on the backs of peons
Currying favor with society’s princes

Centers of excellence abound
Politicians and communicators
Traversing the universe of universities
Moving out into the beyond

Status-seeking stars
In a universe of black holes
Waiting to pull them into
The vastness of nothingness

Oh men of science
Oh builders of empires
Oh star-seekers
Build your universes
Ensure your legacies
