On History

On History


Gavrilo Princip knew the tension in Europe
Was high, so he caused the whole nation to erupt
In a bloody war, and he went out and killed
Archduke Ferdinand and yo, that wasn't ill!


BOOM! Like a powder keg, the Earth exploded
Like a fat kid after dinner feeling bloated
Allied powers v. Axis powers
For four years? 24 hours if they had Jack Bauer

At first USA followed international law…

The above is what I can remember from the rap I wrote on World War I when I was about 15 for a World History class. I thought it was incredibly clever. I am glad to inform you all that as an adult, I now know that Europe is not, in fact, a nation, as I referred to it in the first stanza.

I currently live in Chicago, and am searching for a good tattoo artist who does detailed custom black & gray stuff, so if you’ve had any similar work done and it was a positive experience, please let me know!
