A society without a history

by mbugua dominic mundia

A society without a history
is like a society without a story
just like a river without a mouth
is like a spring without a source
call it primitive, archaic, uncivilized
it all culminate to a community without
less than itself greater than loss
its content is irrational and worth scrutiny
empirical evidence without parameters
but then what matters is abased and biased
indeed our dear past was obsoleted
