A Modern Day Ozymandias

Shelley's poem has always touched me. It's so simple in it's vocabulary and it's construction, and yet it has so much meaning. Even in the present day, when we fight death, decay and change harder than we have ever done, there are signs all around us that, like Ozymandias, we too will be swept inexorably along by nature's more powerful tide.
