I Cheated, But Just a Little

Yesterday, I cheated, but just a little.  It is so frustrating when I’ve done the whole poem, and I just can’t make the last line make sense. So I added the word “history”. Call it poetic license. 
Actually, athough the word "history" was not in the news article, the letters in the word history, in their exact order did follow the last word that I selected from the article.  That's why I say I only cheated a little. 
After over 50 poems, I think I can be permitted a small departure from the rules.  They are my rules, aterall, so I can change them when I must.
