Revisionist History

Revisionist History

We remember what we want to
We bend the details to fit some selfish need
Each dialogue played over in the mind
Is somewhat tainted by our greed

Good things get better as they age
Bad things fester and start to grow
History, in the minds eye,
Is limited to what we think we know

These twisted revisions conjured and creeping
Play into decisions we make today
Let us temper what we remember of the past
And not let it get in our way…

I blog, I garden, I eat cheeseburgers, and sometimes I travel. But mostly I just write poetry...
