Historical Truth Is "in the Eye of the Beholder": A Satirical Poem
Parts of history may not be worth betting dime
like -- of course -- Jesus of Nazareth did exist
but some say Nazareth didn't exist in his time
which seems like little detail everyone missed.
And of course -- man evolved from a crazy ape
and of course -- crazy ape was created by god
and of course -- Adam ate of a forbidden grape
and of course -- the whole matter is highly odd.
For, whenever there is more than one interpretation
it just can't be called science, but a guessing game
left to our believing and to a deliberate persuasion
for which we always tend to find bombastic name.
It's exactly as possible -- as it is also not
that our core beliefs are a bunch of baloney
much of what for centuries was worshiped a lot
with all scholars and their theories all being phony.
"History is nothing but his-story" they say
Napoleon said: "It's a tale told by madman"
everybody interpreting it their own smart way
clumsily attempting to agree the best they can.
So, until man comes up with a "time travel machine"
somehow becoming able to travel back in the time
history stays bunch of events no one has seen
and this is all for my overly skeptical rhyme.
