History

HISTORY

Through the age,
Of death and toil
Of war and famine
Of barren soil;

Shows a circle
Of eons done
Of empires dead,
New ones begun.

Many have died
Many have mourned,
Many have watched,
With heartless scorn,

This rise and fall,
Those beasts of shame,
No lessons learnt.
And nothing gained.

In calm, there’s talk,Ordered and brief,

Peace to the future
No pain and no grief.

But the ball falls,
The horrors begun
No thought is given
To the epochs done.
