    Indeed a good poem includes anatomy, physiology, pathology, biochemistry of His[s]tory

    This extra 's' perhaps to give emphasis to hiss of serpents as war history [which includes max] is full of Hiss and Hush

    Thanks for sharing. Keep it up

    I take it you are the 'History Reader'. Forgive me if this is above my head, somehow the English misses the mark for me, although the title is intriguing. Read mine - A Writer's Delimma -

    Its History of History as commented by Rekha...I agree with

    But the flavor and texture is poetically palatable

    Before last stanza poet prescribed for Gymnastic Geography for Vertigo satire with poetic calorie

    Thanks for a good poetry (Report) Reply

    '...If Not Check Cervical Spine/For Etiology Of Vertigo Sign. '

    Yeah History is such a subject to cause vertigo

    Spelling if Hiss-tory..does it [hiss] mean 'Gush' [as I find one meaning in dictionary] of facts may be

    Wonderfully crafted with punch of satire...well done....thanks for sharing (Report) Reply

    There is a history of History in your beautiful poem.You really made us know that history is something more than the record of the past by exploring its horizon. (Report) Reply

    Very interesting take on historians! I really liked the 'befuddled bookman'. You're right about staying with floor exercise in poetry. Don't dare go into cervical spine. Enjoyed reading this one. Out of the ordinary! (Report) Reply
