Grecian Valentine

We’re closer to Rome than to Greece
As close as Rome was to Greece
Though we love us some golden fleece
As close as Alexander was to Asia
The first universal man
Is still further than us
Greece before there was Greece
There was Egypt and the Norse
Gods and there was Utnapishtim
I think we’re closer to him
He spoke of a sea flower
That would become Greece
The islands of the immortals
But it was swallowed by a viper
