The Neglect Of History

A son of the repudiated brother
Was given the mantle of leadership
He tried to pacify his brothers
But that, cost him his life

Fourty-five years later
A Descendant of the repudiated
Became saddled with the Crown
This time, by Divine Providence

He also tried to placate his brothers
He even abandoned his nuclear family
His brothers conspired against him
Forcing him to give up his crown

Now the Crown-bearer is sick
Smithen by the gods
If you don’t review your past
You cannot address your future.
