Triumphs of Design

A few millennia hence
(fresh from inventing
the shovel and the spade)
those who came after us
will be chancing upon
an ancient sign bearing
an opaque message from
a more illuminated time:

a smiling Death’s-head
on fluorescent yellow,
radiating magic rays.

Desperate, curious,
ever hopeful
they will start digging.
