A moth eaten book

A moth eaten book ravaged by age
With letters erased from many a page
Crumbling under the fingers into dust
Leaving no clue to its glory first

Was he a king whose sway of the sword
Brought his subjects to obey his word
Or was he his general who lost his war
And laid down his life at the feet of his tsar

[Hata Bildir]
