This is in the showcase.  This is part of a selection of poems from my friend.  Comments and thoughts please.

Title: The Death of History
Author: Adam Morgan
Rating: U
Genre: Poetry
Disclaimer: This is a work of fiction.

 
The death of History, of which we hear so much today,
It slithers in so silently, but out of focus does it play,
The television set within our heads can be tuned to black or white,
Or indeed those many shades of grey that tell us lies between our own uncensored naked dreams,
A sore point I’m sure for the many with broken seams, and I’m pretty sure it seems a consolation all too scant; in the dreams of the behemoth as he is lying deep,
That with victory comes power, and with power come right,
Although sadly few too many are blessed with clear hindsight,
Some that do, do all they can to put the injustice right,
Sadly I can do no more than speak of intellectual plight,
For the past is in the past and should not be tampered with,
By all means: speak it, share it, use it, never ever let us lose it,
However, I beg of you please: don’t pander to those who cannot read it,
Or to those who cannot see, for though they are not too bright,
Perhaps God will see them Right!
