Poem: "Revising History"

This poem came out of the July 3, 2012 Poetry Fishbowl.  It was inspired and sponsored by morrigans_eve.  The indriso form is a condensed sonnet, with several very flexible elements in its struture, ideal for short punchy poems that twist and turn.

Revising History
-- an indriso

There is a book made from a bodhi tree
And bound in horn from teeming bison herds
That holds the olden times for all to see.

With ink of martyrs' blood write out the words
And whatsoe'er you write will come to be,
The pots of bygone days restored from sherds.

Which past events would you revise, and why?

Which past events would you not  change, and why?
