Those who took us for what we are
will live to rejoice with us
what they never knew we were.
Those who rejected us for what we were
will live to tell their friends
what good it was they missed in us.
Those who despised our huts
will miss the world of fortune
attendant to kings that lived with us.
Those who derided the slippers we wore today
will announce to their friends
how well new shoes fit into our feet.
Those who refused our embrace of short arms
will live to tell their friends how much love
radiated from the short hugs we gave.
Those who believed only because they saw
will tell generations of near-misses
they achieved for striving to see contents before boxes.
For the wisdom of the ancients
always lay beneath the earth
and reality, beneath the world unseen.
