Very powerful opening and message delivered. I loved everything but the tick-tock line, but that's probably just me. In truth the entire piece was powerfully written. The pace was fast and you hit the point hard. I really enjoyed it and hope it does well. I love reading poems with a punch. Well done!
A wonderful read and a very powerful ending! Well crafted and loaded with delicious nuggets to chew on all along the way.
There is so much truth in the words of your poem.

Ah. I remember sitting in history class hearing this. My guess is the British Empire, yes? Fun read--brings back memories and it has a good note of truth in it. Too often we forget and that's why history repeats itself. Nicely done!
Congratulations on ranking 6th in Masters and in the top 20 overall!!
