History's Judgement

The king wins a war

(though he knows nothing about strategy,

though he does not possess enough courage

to face the enemy),

his commander-in-chief is all in all

(he obeys king's orders keeping himself safe),

his army men dedicate...

scape goats...


What does history tell?

The king is great,

the name of commander bubbles in the air

(if his name is given, king's dignity will shatter),

the army men are lost in ever darkness of past-

(their is no time and space to name them),

the opponent is an evil

(though he may be good

and the winner may be an evil).

Interesting, I agree that the opponent could be good and the successor could be evil. You've given us an excellent question to think about.
