History Poem by Michael Micmac Mccrory


They made me study history
Why?
It’s a thing of the past
There’s no future in it
Goodbye
Well I knew it wouldn’t last

There are people with great wit
Teaching fools about ancient times
They make a living from it
I prefer the people
Who taught me about
Words that rhymes

Do I really want to know history
Or the tale of ancient man
Yes! ! !
I want to know his story
I really want to know him
So I can tell his tale
In a modern poem
