[id: digital art in shades of red and black showing a rider on a rearing horse. the rider clings to the horse with their foot out of the stirrup and hand gripping the horse’s neck. the horse is black with a long mane and wears black tack with red accents. reddish smoke streams from its mouth, nose, and glowing red eye. most of the rider’s face is obscured by darkness, but they have short hair their red eyes look downward. they wear black plate armor with red accents as well as a fabric tunic and cloak. the background is abstract, suggesting fire or smoke surrounding the figures. /end id]
WHAT is that one poem (?), abt a modern worker contemplating the numerous forgotten who were actually responsible for all the ‘great’ deeds of history
A Worker Reads History
Who built the seven gates of Thebes?
The books are filled with names of kings.
Was it the kings who hauled the craggy blocks of stone?
And Babylon, so many times destroyed.
Who built the city up each time? In which of Lima’s houses,
That city glittering with gold, lived those who built it?
In the evening when the Chinese wall was finished
Where did the masons go? Imperial Rome
Is full of arcs of triumph. Who reared them up? Over whom
Did the Caesars triumph? Byzantium lives in song.
Were all her dwellings palaces? And even in Atlantis of the legend
The night the seas rushed in,
The drowning men still bellowed for their slaves.
Young Alexander conquered India.
Caesar beat the Gauls.
Was there not even a cook in his army?
Phillip of Spain wept as his fleet
was sunk and destroyed. Were there no other tears?
Frederick the Great triumphed in the Seven Years War.
Who triumphed with him?
Each page a victory
At whose expense the victory ball?
Every ten years a great man,
Who paid the piper?
So many particulars.
So many questions.
