Variant of Kosovo Polje

Who stood at Kosovo Polje?
Who heard the guns at Waterloo?
Who remembers those days today,
To bear the rancour this day too?

Who won, who lost at Panipat:
What's true and what is forgery?
None alive really would care but
For some cheap rag of history.

The writer's pen captures in ink,
The time we were meant to forget.
We read much but we do not think,
And contrived hatred we beget.

The last who remember are dead
We rush to take their place instead.
