Grayscale Photography of Statues

Encapsulated in a warp of time and space,

to hold mystical powers over future days.

Does history lie in the hands of the winner?

a depiction of truth or an extension of reality,

twirled and twisted like licorice?

Some might say it’s the biggest scam

unsympathetic to the ones who succumbed

and predisposed to the holders of the pen.

Carefully selected vestiges of that once was

to fit agendas that now are!!

If history lies in the hands of the winner,

then it will be perceived in the eyes of the beholder.
