Totally Archeological
~Marge Tindal~ 1999



Through the layers
of life on earth
an archeological find
Layer upon layer
of the earth that was
long before
and now after
our time

At the core
the heat of heart
always beating true
The layers of history
hanging in the balance

The days of Pompeii
layered for all to see
Digging toward the sky
Indian relics lay in store
Under layers
of blood red clay
sealed forevermore

The relic bones of dinosaurs
who walked the earth with ease
The Lost City Of Atlantis
squeezed in for all to see

Aztec stones
moved with ease
poised for all
to merely see

Egyptian tombs
of King Tutankhamen
lined with all that gold
Mother Earth
coughs up stories
of legends
to be told

To the 20th century
why it's
totally bombastic !
A layer of life
simply filled
with everything
made of
plastic !

Bio-degradable
or degradation ?
The layer of earth
reveals
only what we leave
for archeological appeal

Hoot -
I'll settle for your wisdom.
Just hope we all wise up.
I'd sure like to leave a legacy
of something more than plastic
for our archeological digs.

Great poem! I like it because it's a demanding subject to talk about.

With all the lies that people tell
And gossip that can hurt
Don't worry, Marge, I'm sure that we
Will not run out of dirt!
