The Little People - Poem by David Keig

Every culture tells us of little people living
We've discounted such mythologies
Without for a moment giving
Any credence to such tales
We've seen them as pure fables
Now little people fossilised
Have been found and it seems that man is able
To develop into different forms
Not just the form we've taken
For a different evolution makes
These tales no longer fancy
So let us celebrate folklore
It will surprise us what we can see.
