Pompei Wall a volcano on top of the mountain, they may have forgotten the sound, vulcan awoke, beat his anvil, blew smoke, and then the earth quaked and land rose up out of the sea. harbour went dry, temple walls fell awry, huge boulders rolled down from above builders were called to repair as they could but the earth was not finished quite yet. a rumble and roar, the crater blew up. hot ash just flew down the slope. smothered and burned (vulcan's offerings spurned). now we look and wonder everrything is all thrown asunder, the walls, they fell down all over the town. it came down with a roar. vulcan hammered the floor they didn't understand then, we don't understand it much more.
