History Will Remember Them – Written Sunday 28th June 2020 (Aged 45)

History Will Remember Them

history will remember them
for who they are
the present,
may attempt to wipe clean their faces
and in moments,
happily do up their laces
but history
will remember them for who they are
their misdemeanors
and morality stain
from leaders, so very vain
history will tell on them
in a way our present does not
if our institutions remain blind
then it will be the future that joins the dots
history will remember them
for who they are
and for their deeds
their ethical absenteeism
and the failure to morally lead
we hear the, knock, knock
gently on futures door
history will remember them
for who they are and what they were




James Garratt – Sunday 28th June 2020
