In school now, we started history,
I like history; it is full of mystery,
We uncover the Greeks and the Roman eras,
Learn of Hannibal, and Persia and Shiraz,
Alexander the great, Napoleon Bonaparte,
All wanted to conquer the world, from the start,
Archimedes, Socrates, Diogenes, Plato, and Cicero
Philosophers, writers, playwrights, and the occasional Pharaoh,
“The Plague”, the Crusaders and the renaissance art,
The “Atom Age”, the London stage, what is “A-La-Cart”?
Leonardo, Verdi and the dreadful dark ages,
And Loren Berry with the “Yellow Pages”,
There was Edison and electricity,
Then taxes came for the Province and the City,
If Mona Lisa were around, she too would be filing,
I’ll bet you if she was, she would not be smiling
