The Lessons From the Past- Poem

Lessons From the Past

By Ben Fetterman

It’s been oft said and repeated
“Those who don’t know history
Are doomed to repeat it”
And those with historical knowledge will often see trends,
Which lend credence to this saying.
As well as it this saying applies to the macro scale,
It works just as well,
If not better,
On the micro scale.
While most people don’t realize it in themselves,
They can easily point it out in their friends.
How they’ll make promises and fail to keep them for the same reason,
Or in their choice in significant other,
As well as what’s most likely to get their goat.
So whether on the personal scale,
Or the international one,
It is important to heed
The lessons from the past.
