The Old Library

 

The creaky staircase,

which has not seen paint in years

and the dark path

on which powerful eyes stumble

lead to an old library

filled with ancient books,

rats feed on the countless

pages of knowledge and entertainment,

authors valued centuries ago

lie torn amongst

mice, bugs and roaches

in a dusty old building

  1. these treasures from our elders not only neglected but food for insects and rodents …. this most surely is both a crime and poor diet that can cause indigestional issues along the way …. great reminder nightlake that the classics should be well preserved and maintained for both our generation and future generations to come ….:)
