Some folks are wise and some are otherwise. I guess we know which one you are.

Have you ever had a dream?
I've had one, you know.
It started in the world of Earth,
A very long time ago.

It started when Adam saw Eve,
And the their children were born,
It started when love began,
Between two humans, torn.

It started with my ancestor,
A Viking, traveled from far off lands,
To live in the new country,
That had good commands.

It started when that grandfather,
A great man times three,
Married an American,
With Native blood in she.

It started when my mother,
Meet my father with blood,
That ran in two presidents,
Lincoln and Adams, the buds.

It started when they married,
And my sister was born,
It started when they gave,
Their wisdom for us poor.

It went on while I walked,
And talked upon the Earth,
It ended when that car,
Ended my mirth.

The author's comments:
My family is a weird mix: Native American, Norwegian (Vikings), English, and some more, and I am related to Lincoln and Adams.
