Fire side

He was the lonely survivor
of a great war.
He wanted to collect some sovereigns now.
(Mostly inanimate objects )

Wading through the silence
he managed to reach an altar
kicked a few gods
and picked up a metal tablet.

Fire side stories deciphered the hieroglyphics
forming new symbols
out of the dancing flames.

It was warm on the fire side
As yet another story
charred to conclusion.
