Genealogy by Robert Hamill

Children and friends lift recent deceased to close cumulus clouds

Embodying family myths and lessons

They guide our daily lives.

Descendents cull the family heavens

Adjusting the residents up and down.

Sharper and brighter

Or more faded and dull.

Security outweighs liberty, Uncle Preacher in the Cave is great

Form dominates beauty, Grandma Moses shifts in her chair.

The tally of plus and minus

Changing with age's sticks.

Objectivity lauds the Absolute

Subjectivity recognizes knowledge limits.

Herodotus allows a few

Into the halls of history.

The great, the important, the interesting, the evil

Live on forever.

Their deeds the groundwork of our days

Controlling us as Zeus from towering Olympus.
