A Century Of Events


A century of events collapses into ruin,
A blighted time has arrived at the doorstep.
Once the rickety bridge has been crossed,
Our speeches concretely define our tastes.
The notable fish of the time indeed,
The notable fish of the times of our realm
Are swimming and diving in the sea of radiance
To further annoy the other fish of this century.
Our needs are met by guests of brilliance
Interested by accusations and ploys hurting.
The century is a whole century of guilt
When from all sides of the globe
The conquerors work upon us to rid us
Of benefit and love for each other.

poet Richard Lovelace

Tell me not (Sweet) I am unkind,
That from the nunnery
Of thy chaste breast and quiet mind
To war and arms I fly.

True, a new mistress now I chase,
