link's a little tongue in cheek emulative ancestor worship...(so say some)...

Henry the eighty eighth...
Act I Scene II

We stand

Not in mere defiance
But to give with our last breath
A final meager show of arm
A hope and a promise
That the sins of our nature
Not be counted
Among the ere’s of our children

We Stand

Before this vast spread of branch
Before ever we came as witness to this event
This great tree stood
Unknowingly parcelling as gift
this segment of it’s sojourn
That we the commonality
The pox of grand endeavor
Succumb in happy circumstance
to our entropic childhood

We stand

Not only as a means of physical achievement
But justly
With righteousness our council
This sole pathetic gift
Our immutable bastion
That history bear as ultimatum our call
That it give in full stark measure
The truth of conflict
The honest appraisal of our action

I will bite out of curiosity cause I've heard it before... does this come from Shakespeare's Henry the Fourth ?

Ummm...hello Manuel...As to your is just something I wrote some time ago...I was trying to emulate Shakespeare's writing style...

My Family traces it's ancestry back to the Tudors and also the Stuarts...Mary Queen of Scott's in particular...Some Historian's have speculated that one of my ancestors was the actual writer behind the body of work attributed to William Shakespeare...
There's probably no truth to that claim...but I find it fascinating nonetheless...All I know is that my writing style seems to fit more the classical variety than modern or post modern writing...

I'm sure it sounds like something Shakespeare might have produced...because that was my intent...It's a relatively easy style of writing to emulate and I've certainly thought of expanding on the above...fleshing it out into a play perhaps...Who knows...maybe time will be kind to me and I can explore these thoughts further...

Thank you for your interest Manuel...May your day be one filled with the most wonderful imaginings...
