To Future Icons

If you are to set out seeking

your fame and fortune

in this really cool modern world of today

I offer my sympathies

for the dagblasted mess

we have left this work area in

being younger than us

you will be wiser

and therefore

more considerate of our short-comings,

as far as this topic is concerned

We have nor make any excuses

for the savagery hacked

into the core fibers of civilization

In your youthful all-knowing

you will credit time's swift passage

as being one of our most immediate

and mortal shock-points

while examining

our trespassings
