For today’s prompt, write a historic poem. It could be a poem about a landmark event, specific battle, an era in time, or whatever you consider a historic happening.
by John Yeo
Yesterday is history.
I was part of a moment in time.
I wrote a piece of poetry entitled Nature.
I posted my poem on the internet
Now it is a historical piece of poetry.
Today is now.
I am a part of a moment in time.
Tomorrow my actions will be historical
I am writing a piece of poetry on History
I will post this piece of history on the internet.
Tomorrow is the future
I plan to write a piece of poetry
On the subject of the day.
The day after tomorrow my future poem
Will become history.
I will publish my future historical
poem on the world wide web.
