Characterised Poem Example

EGG-STANT HISTORY 7

I have realised just now” added the Owl, “that you were destined to know me better, and I believe I was destined to teach you something from my modest store of knowledge. Does it not seem more than a little strange to you that we have, if you'll forgive the expression in light of your earlier incident, 'bumped into each other' I being of the  Avian species, and you having been an egg? So you see I would have an affinity with you already....’  Hmm... I wonder what (He) is doing here. Oh never mind.' He moves in mysterious ways his wonders to perform.” As Dumpty digested these words he felt somewhat reassured yet strangely perplexed, “Now” said the Owl “second questions second, I suppose I had better give you an idea of the attributes of the Mongols the other people you touched on, Mongols. Now where to start??”  Said the Owl clearing its throat somewhat. The most famous of these was their 'Genghis Kahn' my own father was his Owl companion, whom the Roman world has characterised as a most brutal conqueror, but then again the were literate, and had the media weapons of the day (so to speak) to use against him, remember he was really the only one to defeat them properly speaking. Not saying he did not subjugate many nations and he and his armies killed all who opposed him, yet for all that he saw himself as a man being used by God to bring a.. well, a spiritual cleanliness to the world, he valued the open plains, he wished to see his horse herds grazing free as far as the eye could see, over land that re-generated itself; he enjoyed living close to the land and off of it, and if life was shortened by this type of existence he would rather have an active short life, to him that was preferable to living inside four walls, in unclean Cities where the free wind did not blow and the ground could not breath, he saw cities as places where people 'specially Romans toileted in their own homes, and of course he was right although the waste channels did not flow all enclosed like they do today, so while the 'civilised' world oh how I do 'abhor' that word, I suppose I've picked that up from the Mongols, the civilised world complained that the Mogols smelled of unwashed bodies the open steppe and horses, on the other hand the Mongols were disgusted by the lewd practices of the Romans, for instance when he'd captured Rome he was incensed at the life sized naked statues, so he ordered his men to put clothes on them (one can imagine statues with tartar hats and coats).”
