I love this poem. It just brought me to some scenario of History. Which's explained in beautiful and lively way. There's not much Poet could make smiles by giving long explanation with some perspectives. I could read this poem again and again, still ended it with big smile, like having a new discovery. Thanks for the poem! [3

Very humorous, as are all of Nash's poems. I like his shorter ones better, like this one called 'The Purist': I give you now Professor Twist, A conscientious scientist, Trustees exclaimed, 'He never bungles!

Professor Twist could not but smile. 'You mean', he said, 'a crocodile'.
