Limerick- A Thousand Years From Now - Poem by Allen Steble

In a thousand years when possessions are dust
and a thousand more when metal is powdered rust
when the past lays bare with scattered mystery
days remembered long ago as ancient history
Our lives forgotten, devoured into earth's crust

    A thousand years later man will not live as such
    Stephen Hawkins says, ' We have to quit the earth at the earliest',
    But a poem has to hopefully survive.... What to do?
