Honest History

History isn’t always learned through books

because of you I experienced it first hand

The trips to the capitol

Captivating Cool Charismatic

stepping through U.S. history In an hour

 

We fly through the flight museum

riding rickety wooden wings of terror

with rusty relics that surround

silver seventies spaceships

to fighter jets that landed on your naval carrier

 

You show the extremes of history from pride to regret

the creatively crafted constitution to

gruesome horrors of the Holocaust

You show me honest history

through the eyes of a True Hero
