Poetry Break: History Depletes Itself

Sack of Rome in 410

Alaric in 410:

History Depletes Itself
When in Rome, conquer as the Romans did.

Alaric did!

I sense there is something Zenoic in the fact that history depletes itself over and over again--indeed perpetually--yet never arrives at complete emptiness.
