Error and Truth of History

Error and Truth of History*
by C. Charles Bley

a criminal's doubt or discovery
Less appalling by explosion
in a moment of aggression

and human error is first committed
wild with its frenzy and crimes
of calamities

exposed scores of huge nukes in
the underground ex-It really
realistic reckless

peaceful vital power can
whether or not reality
commits to history
