A Little Talk On Recent History
(11 July 2002)
As recent history shows,
the story of events
sometimes begins, rather than ends,
with (!)JUBILIANT(!) announcements
of their discovery: newly
discovered drawings attributed to
Michelangelo; Tourmai, the new
fossil hominid -- as 'Uh-Oh'
sometimes follows 'EUREKA!',
as 'EUREKA!' sometimes follows
'Uh-OH'. For those of us willing
to stay the course, the world serves
up answers in its hyperbolic style,
answers for the moment though
it has not the same moment always.
Changes occur and it changes
with them. Recent history is felt.
