A HISTORY ESSAY RETURNED
No, please Kate,
Battles show men’s hate.
Far more than just the date;
Treaties, policies and then create
Some pictures of the heads of state.
Were they early for meetings, or badly late?
Did one king rule kindly but the other dictate?
Build a picture of the land, the river in spate
Where archers died, arrows in the pate.
Or drowned in a torrent by the gate
Where the weeping ladies wait
For bitter fighting to abate.
And learn a lover’s fate.
It’s history Kate!
