Retrospective

We do not recognize greatness unless in retrospective,
Then it is not that easy to be true and objective,
Living next door to Beethoven neighbors complained,
Einstein always had issues, difficult to be explained,
Picasso’s neighbor was allergic to oils and turpentine,
Hemmingway spent nights under the table with wine,
Today we see them all as our cultural idols and heroes,
Back in their time, they were regular everyday figures,
