History is made by winners and losers and is written by the sons and daughters of time.

CRENEL - CRICKET

History has function in our present; not in our past
Reality is real at the moment but doesn't last
A cricket hops where it hops
Velikosky can't make it stop
Our last crenelled future has been reset but not recast

I once wrote a History of Beds and sent it to Henry Ford for comment. He replied, "It's like I said before, History is Bunk."

CRENEL CRICKET smile

The crenel in the parapet
Is made for those who did not get
An armor for a shield
Thus on the cricket field
It's wise to wear a helmet

History is wonderful trough of facts and fiction.

I spy his approach from afar:
The man who draws near's my Bête Noire
I think he's a berk
And he drives me berserk -
But what can I do? - He's my Pa!!
