Let’s … Reminisce

'The Father of History' - Herodotus, the instigator
‘The Father of History’ – Herodotus, the instigator

Engraved in their bones,

Their carrier,

Absorbing memories

Of so many others,

Regrets,

The refused,

A distaste for the insufficient

Betray these tell tale signs

Of weakness,

Expression of mingled horror

Pity,

A raspy sigh

And a barley audible

‘History is made, boy, not made up’
