Ancient Writ

There we were
talking of how our

head gear created
too much heat
how we loved
to gather fruit
from trees in distant

When a banner appeared
in the sky
spelling words we did
not know,
some heavenly message,
a command? A reprimand?

Damn, we thought,
why didn't we pay
more attention
in grammar school?
