Michelangelo di Lodovici di Lionardo di Buonarroti Simoni was the greatest sculpture of his time, perhaps of all time. Though he preferred sculpting, Michelangelo was also an accomplished painter, he painted The Last Judgment, Leonardo Da Vinci, and so many others.

In Ancient Times the arts prospered, everyone in a nation followed the same laws, most people spoke the same language and architecture was built to a new height, then barbarians invaded and destroyed that lifestyle. After the Ancient Times fell, nobody lived anywhere where art was a big deal. Nobody lived where everyone spoke the same language. Very few really cared how a building looked; just how well it would hold off enemies. During Ancient Times one could travel all the way across Rome and not run into robbers, traders could carry their wares up and down Romes smooth roads and not have to look out for rocks; then that ended.
The time of the Renaissance, when arts prospered, everyone in a nation followed the same laws, most people spoke the same language, and architecture was built to a new height. Renaissance: “Rebirth”,, rebirth of smooth roads and great artist, rebirth of scientific studies and philosophers. Rebirth of the Roman ways.
The time of the Black Death was a terrible time. The Black Death was a bubonic plague, spread rapidly by fleas on rats. People with the Black death had headache, fever, coughing, sneezing and lumps under their arms. Most people who got sick died with in three days, and one out of every three people would catch it. The people of the Middle Ages thought that the Black Death was the judgment of God. Villagers who lived near the Black sea blamed foreign merchants for bringing the illness. In the city of Caffa, dead bodies were thrown over the wall using catapults. The days of that terrible sickness brought hardships on all of Europe and Asia. So many died that when a preacher began a funeral session, many people would join in carrying their dead. The days of the Black Death were horribly sad.
A conquistador was a Spanish or Portuguese soldier. When Columbus discovered America, Spain and Portugal raced to claim land on this new continent. But when they arrived they found that this new land was already occupied- by Native Americans. So each nation sent over soldiers to drive out these natives. These Spanish and Portuguese soldiers were fierce, these soldiers were ruthless, these soldiers were Conquistadors
Run, run, till you can’t catch your breath,
Run, as if you don’t you’ll drop to your death,
Run, run, as if monsters chase you,
Run, or those monsters will eat you!
Run, run, like as if life on it depends,
Run, hurry! Before that life ends.
Run, run, for it will pass time,
Run, oh, do my words rhyme?
Run, run, for it is good for your health,
Run, and you’ll gain fitness-type wealth.
Run, run, till you can’t run no more,
After all, isn’t that what sidewalks are for?
Bounce ball, high in the air,
Bounce ball, bounce to over there,
Bounce ball, bounce up to the sky,
Bounce ball, bounce way up high.
Bounce ball, so I can catch you,
Bounce ball, wish I could fly too.
