Back Ache

 Civilizations prior, we scoff.

Where is the evidence

Of fast food and oil drilling?

Why doesn’t Linear B

Have words for fatigue

And Post Traumatic Stress?

Look though we might we know

Of no vaccine for any

Ancient disease, and all

Those heaps of stones

We do see will go on 

Crumbling as our ships

Reach Mars and Jupiter’s

Moons.  No prior people,

Real or imagined

Have conceived our

World we are quite sure 

Having inspected their 

Caves, fondled their

Bones, and rummaged 

Through their DNA
