' ' ' History Lesson For A Schoolteacher - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

'Henry the Eight had five wifes and a headmistress! '

'Churchill is that dog that can't sing and sells insurance on the telly! '

To children growing up into this Brave New World
...even recent history is ancient history

and is already begining to sound mythlogical!
