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

Old worlds and old ways
The past was not primitive
Yesteryear solace

Lost worlds underneath
Lost histories lie buried
Now they are revealed
