Musings - History - Poem by Paul Warren

As I read the pages of history now
And of prior generations of know-how
I wonder if it happened that way
Or is it how some person long ago and far away
Decided the story would sound better
And so not write the story to the letter
With a certain person as the hero
And others who may be seen as a zero
If I could go back and see
Would things be as they are now seen to be?
