A Rondeau on the Difficulty of Seeking Objective Truth in History

Objective truth cannot be found
In books of hist'ry, which are bound
To show facts in a certain light.
So we must use our great insight
And cynically must dig around
Examine all, for nothing's sound
And truth lies buried underground,
Except we find none.  So we fight
Objective truth
We say all's equal, pound for pound.
We shy away from judging, hound
The ignorant who needs must write
As if there is a moral right
Or wrong.  Always we must expound
Objective truth.
