The massive slab creaked

and ground the floor.

The men from the village,

those who hadn’t fled,

grimaced and strained.


The light shone at last

in dancing dust-

on ancient stone.

Three old men squinted

through awakening dark.


Who were they?

What did they mean?

Their faces grinned with the promise of answers

but could they be trusted?

How were they to be asked?
