a claim to future fame

in an age that is yet unborn
will come some student of the written word
to the words that i have written down
he'll look askance at my little hoard
and scratch his head and cough and frown
then in a voice quite ponderous
great god in heaven what was all the fuss

but that night by the light of a lantern moon
he'll toss and turn in fevered swoon
he'll wake with eyes staring wide
and heartbeat pounding terrified
and cry
my god i am alive
