Riposte

“While History repeats itself,

The Past cannot be replicated,”

I said.

 

“History doesn’t matter,

Only the Future is important,”

You replied.

 

“The Future is impossible,

Without understanding the Past,”

I quipped.

 

“The Past doesn’t matter,

When you live in the Future,”

He retorted.

 

“Those who don’t respect the Past,

Are destined to repeat it,”

I answered.

 

“Those who don’t live in the Future,

Are left behind with the relics,”

He countered.

 

We will never know who was right,

But because we could make no agreements,

We let the present slip away.
