Ages of humans here they’re told
Recite them to the young and old

First comes bone and then to stone
Next in sun bronze and iron shone

These be tools and weapons drawn
To make shelter and **** the pawn

Men lack hides of Rino thick
And teeth to bite but have brains to trick

Before the time of written word
Know we not of what occurred

With our tricks we peer at last
To see why we forgot our past

Trapped in ice a record tells
Of dangerous times that us compels

To say that we were simple men
Is a lie that we must defend

For if there were ages lost
Fragile we are and easily squashed

That’s why we control the land
So she does not to us command

We do not know in full
If the land can be ruled

5x5  10,000 times
Humans walked beneath the pines

The ages of women that we know still
Are but a scribble from a quill

From that time, long forgot
In our minds a missing slot

Deeds we did were lost in tales
Now myths to us dimmed by the ales

Who were we before the fall
History now, is a scholars brawl

The ages of men are short compared
To the time before we all had erred

Now the age is that of space
Not a void but a starry race

Here we try and avoid the fall
It’s a long way down after all
