Sammiscribbles weekend writing prompt #269 #A history of civilisation

Ten thousand years ago it seems

that the ice-cap melted, making seas

rise up so that what once were mudflats

were changed into great fields of grass

people had to settle wherever they could

by farming land that was once great woods

occasionally fighting off the raids

of strangers trying to invade but found

by breeding together caused variation

that resulted in the forging of our nation
