Nothing New Under The Sun

Poem By Reason A. Poteet

verse, dimeter

Subtitle: The Year 1447

Babies are born
fathers die.
Men maneuver
cousins rule.

Consorts juggle
Wars are lost.
Rights are restored
Life goes on.

Fourteen hundred
Under the sun
nothing new.

Unless you
count Dracula.
also known as
the Impaler.
