Give Credit Where Credit Is Due short poem

Well have you ever wondered why they
give Columbus the credit for finding
North America when he never set a foot
on the promised land, no it was the Vikings
that came here first and we have proof
after finding their settlements. we now
know it pre-dates any other civilization
except the Indians known to man…
So I think it’s time to re-write the history
books ‘cuz
CREDIT IS DUE, don’t you know, not
everything you hear or read is true,
it might be what some people want you
to believe but don’t be a fool, seek, research
and find the truth, no don’t be a fool and
Columbus day should be changed to
Viking day now wouldn’t you say…
Why do we permit our children to be
lied to in school especially when we
know it’s not true…?
I think it’s time we GAVE CREDIT
