History

by Elvira

                                    Sitting                          on the riverbank,
the General                 could not understand,             How the Empire
had Fallen
Sitting                          on the Divan, the
Pastor                          wondered                    why the Empire
fell
the Chief                     analyzed                      why the
Tribe                            lost                              its
hunting ground
the President,              shaking,                       demanded why
the Army                     Failed!

Empires:                                              British
French
Aztec
are moved       by Blood and
Death.
Christianity                  would not have arisen
if Rome
had offered     Hope.
Timelines        —        Discovery
Rape
Pillage             all Blocks
on which great                                    Nations
are born
America:                                             on the backs
Browns
Blacks
Red
Ignoring                       ancient customs
Bullied                         its way to
become:                      the Empire
of         Iran
Afghanistan
Vietnam
Mexico,                                               not just by Arms
but, also by                                          sphere of Influence
each fort, leach naval base
called America and NOT
Iraq
Cuba
Jordon.

“I am                                                   an American”
you can’t                     arrest me for
smuggling       drugs
guns
people
money.
To                    any nation
if                                  is                      fair in Love
and War
“Lie                  for a living”
You never know                                  what’s true
what                            isn’t.
The Holy Book             is                      only paper,
the Oath                      worth               NOTHING.
So,                                                       America,
does                 unbidden,
where                                                  the devil Himself
dares               not go,
polluting          centuries of tradition
because           the Big Mac
tastes the                                            same in London
as         in                     Lahore.
Death                          saw                  the crumble of
Macedonia
Holy Roman Empire
New Spain                               to be replaced with
counterfeit                                          dogmas that
ever change,               as Orwell Knew.
The Vanquished          NEVER writes              the HISTORY
the Language
the dream:
Everything                   is flux
Is                                  yesterday
Today              or,        will                  Tomorrow
ever happen?              Read
the
Runes (Ruins)
and,
SEE.
