Fundamental of Liar Chapter XII: Art of History

some made theory
some dig from dust
mother's story tales
old legend songs
power can destroy it
power can hide it
power can create it
power can manipulate it
the conqueror will claim
the destiny will change
the witnesses remember
prepare to see what they want to see
blurred memories, dark memories
reflection memories, fake memories
some exaggerate, some silence
some disappear, some be found
some become famous, some crush down
miscellaneous versions years later
does anybody care?
more than 5 W, I H
heroes, tyrants
founders, traitors
scandals, tragedies
glories, victories
mistakes, regrets
quotes, decisions
records, numbers
doubt it, talk it
search it, prove it
write it, burn it
learn it, better it
before you born
in your life
after your death
happening act in dirty lake
touch my heart, touch my tears
blind my eyes, blind my ears
lies everywhere
lies everywhere

Poem of the Day

poet John Gay

Friendship, as love, is but a name,
Save in a concentrated flame;
