Day 26 of GloPoWriMo invites one to depict an archaeologist of the future’s analysis of something he discovered in our world. I think what follows is an accurate reflection of the way their minds operate in general.
Our diggings have unearthed a hall
Quite perfectly preserved,
On many shelves our sensors fall
For study well deserved,
Variety of artefacts
Is quite incredible,
And indicate some secret pacts
With things inedible.
Conclusion has to be ‘Them All’
(For thus it is transcribed)
Is what some past race used to call
The gods to which subscribed,
Thus all the strange things here displayed
And placed upon these planks
Were offerings to these gods they made
So as to offer thanks.
They could not be of use to them;
The builders then would be,
Intelligence with carbon stem:
Perceptors indicate a few
Were actually not grown,
Which indicates some beings who
Kinetic skills have shown.
