Cassandra Curse

I teach History, you see. 
But, I don't know what it is. 
Just as Hollywood remakes classics
with new faces for new generations,
I suspect,
I do much the same.

I do try to sweep away
the old myths and lies
of History, but, 
as each class, each year,
recedes farther from my age,
I wonder,
am I just replacing old myths,
with my myths. 

Is there something tangible
that I can teach?
Have we evolved at all?
I sit here, just past the bloodiest century
since we left the savannah,
and I wonder,,,

Am I just another shill.
New myths for old!
New myths for old!
Come and get 
your hot new myths.
