history

Lack of knowledge and information-
Wasn’t the problem…
But it was ignorance just the same.
Failure to appreciate History-
And its notorious gift of repeating itself…
Will set a new world aflame.

What point are mistakes?-
And dire consequences…
If failed is the lesson learned?
A new place and people-
But the same failed system…
Now sightless and unconcerned.

A sense of power coveted-
And bogus holds on control…
History’s repeated sin.
Yet here they stand-
In blinded glory…
Deluded in beliefs and what might have been.
