We discovered a pot It was sealed Buried in earth We were the first to see it In two millennia It was quite a moment
Full of ceremonial axes Beautiful Bronze Totally useless Just for show
The hands that made them Never changed a TV channel Or tweeted They never put a phone to their ear Or held up a gallery brochure
But they knew what beauty was
End Of Poem Extras to follow
We also found this 70,000 coins Gold neck rings Jewellery Even the footprints of the men who buried it!
Sometimes the most beautiful things are the most useless! We only keep them around because we love them
