[Deconstructing Henry's history]

by Amy Belding Brown

Deconstructing Henry's history
will furnish endless mystery.
Like a box of morsels tasty,
don't sample them too hasty,
lest puzzling grow protracted
and your mind become distracted
by doubts inconsequential
and analysis tangential.
Just use imagination
to enhance your divination --
think Henry perched on Concord clay
reading Ernest Hemingway. ;)
