Consider Yourself Lucky …. [things Could Be Worse! ; History; Personal Problems; Humor (Maybe Not) ] - Poem by Bri Edwards

I’m not a history buff at all, ……BUT I’ve heard some stories ……
about some of history’s most grievous moments, and some …..of its glories.
I’ll repeat several of the grievous moments for you now to hear.
Some of you may scoff at them, while some may shed a tear.

In ancient Rome some early Christians were fed to wild beasts.
In Fiji once lived men who, on their enemies, would feast.
Citizens of Pompeii were buried by volcanic ash and mud.
Native Americans were persecuted by “whites”....who sometimes shed their blood.

Millions died from the Black Plague in Europe many years ago,
and millions more died,........when the ‘winds of war’, there, did ‘blow’.
People have been doomed to suffer, and sometimes die indeed,
for being of the “wrong” color,....caste, ethnicity, or creed.

So perhaps next time you break a nail, your car runs out of gas,
you don’t get the gift-desired, or, the math exam, you fail to pass,
consider history; then you may think yourself a lucky gal or guy,
that you aren’t in ancient Rome....with a lion chewing on your thigh.

    I love this!
    And I do feel lucky.
    I knew where you got 'winds of war'. I read that book years ago, but in the Reader's Digest condensed version. (Report) Reply

    Ah the mountains out of mole hills woe is me. Great write. So much dark history and yet people still exaggerate their dreary lives. (Report) Reply
