Haibun Poem: Inheritance

History is a narrative,
tomes written by the victors,
stories bequeathed to us children
who merely play
among the cast offs of giants.

We inheritors
Our shacks around palaces
Digging in the dirt

  1. I always wonder how wrong the history books really are. I have heard, for instance, George Washington was actually not the first US president. Kind of a big one! Great poem thank you for sharing it.
