'When wasteful war shall statues overturn'. To whom is the speaker saying these lines what he meant by it

The speaker says these lines to the readers who are reading his poetry. He means to say that when the wars will overturn he statues, uproot the work of masonry and destroy all monuments and statues his piece of poetry will still last forever in the eyes of posterity.

Hope it helps...
