In Honor of Hagia Sophia

From A Liturgy for the Emperor
By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall

Our eternal Constantinople is
Never to be lost, never defeated:
In every Christian flows Dragases’ blood
Every village is the Holy City
Every church is Hagia Sophia
Every prayer is a Mass for the Emperor
Every children’s foot-race the Hippodrome
Every poor family’s poor supper
A banquet under the Red-Apple Tree –
Constantinople lives, now and forever
