A HISTORY ESSAY RETURNED

“Elaborate.

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!

Elaborate!!”
