The Mother Of Truth - Poem by Asher Breuer Weil

Sodom is yet again ablaze,
But I will not look back.
Gomorrah burns in a familiar haze,
But I’ll continue on my track.

History is the mother of truth;
She warned me in my tinted youth
Of the lure of the mistress Past,
Whose caress shall always be your last.

History is the fount of reality;
To swim in it however, is to accept your mortality
Like when Adam and Eve took of the tree
What did they but limitations see
and the fruits’ hollow core,
That in a previous age a great tree bore.

She was but a pillar of salt to season time immemorial
And enrich dense history thickening-fast.
