Terra Cotta Warriors

8,000 soldiers
10,000 bronze warriors
670 horses
130 chariots
This man was certainly fearful
Of retribution in the afterlife
And the finality of death
Isn’t it ironic then
That he died of mercury poisoning?
To be fair
He thought it would make him immortal
He shouldn’t have tried though
No elixirs or potions were needed
He is already quite immortalized
In stone
Even so
His spirit
And his ghost
Take turns
Patiently sipping
Any novel concoctions
Terra Cotta Warriors
