hindsight

Time makes poor ugly idiots
of the living and their lesser lords –
no pharaoh’s hoard included
a microwave, or a combination
printer/scanner –
what use
was caveman wealth?
What worth in
gaudy feathers and
flimsy filigrees
compares to central heating?
How stupid, how silly,
togas, gambeson,
and double-breasted suits,
how foolish will we all seem
to those unborn
waiting
at the end of time?
