Pictographs, oracle bones. hieroglyphics,

triangles pressed in clay, the Phoneticians

great gift of permanence.


Thoughts, knowledge, entertainment,

philosophy, history, religion, all our

deep pondering could not exist

with accuracy without them.


No medicine, no movies, no metaphysics,

no memory of our Humanity.

Our journey would be unmapped.

There would be no highway to follow,

only an overgrown trail needing

re-blazed by each generation.


The past would be chocked out,

dead ends all along the way.


The gift of writing is a shining gem,

Its sparkling light removes the

Shadow from our collective psyche.

Mount it in a golden ring

it is precious.
