Old Aztec



What does history hold  
With holes in stories told  


Who was there as witness 
To have seen with sight as proof


Who wrote the books of time gone by 
And stood on neutral ground to profess 


Shattered colosseums, and headless statues  
Gaps in stories told


Effort made to hold on to time   
Archaeology and preservations 
Building stabilisers to hold 
Unto  crumbling stands   


Until the next craze
To clear intention of directions off  


What does history hold 
With holes in stories told  
With old Aztec buildings 
That mounts the mystery of time
Enhanced by Zemanta

  3. "until the next craze..." such seems the way of things. Especially like how you question who was there. Makes me think of history maintaining the often unstated views of those attempting to preserve it. Thought-provoking interpretation of the photo.
