Description of History - by - Bob Atkinson

Description of History
(c)2016 Bob Atkinson


here we have a world behind
what should suffice for us
yet when we describe what happened
we sometimes gloss over dust

where does reality arise
where do we stand and cheer
or lament strange passings
which flew fast past our ears

do we really know good truth
or tell lies to ourselves
in order to diminish guilt
piled on our minds so high

as we watch in horror
all actions of our peers
so do we file in folders
tears wept through sad years

hoping we gain compassion
finding strength in what we do
telling those not born yet
we tried our best for you
