Round and round

Galileo once said the earth was round.

One small step for man. One giant leap forward for mankind. Forwards and backwards.
Round and round we go.

The rise and fall of rome. High tides, low tides flow back to the sea

without so much as a backward glance

 

abolitionists rising up

helped fill the compensation cup,

 

now who looks back down the path they walk

at the faces like fossils in the chalk?
