May 10th (Part 2)-Letter to My Grand Papa Poem by Senator alufalism

All my lost came
on may 10th
my vision became focus
on may 10th
a great historian has gone
to rest on may 10th
youth pray not to
pass through may 10th
singing and dancing after death
yet history must keep
on may 10th
a watchful man lost
breath in a common form
on may 10th
study more to have yourselve
as a baby laugh on basic form
so is hardtimes
on may 10th we must
be watchful for great-men
like my old papa
who is an historian
who is a faithful man
who is that unperfect man
: : : : : whom i call grand papa
though he was my
faithful friend even
at 90
he was still an historian
he was unperfect because
no man under the
sun is perfect
my friend even at his last seconds
he was faithful
