Commercial

A mark, a form, a Babylonian wedge,
so commercial –
a four thousand year old spreadsheet;
we dream of ancient pasts
where gods walked through glistening forests
hunting rams who spat poetry in their death thralls;
these were not killed by faithless men,
but by accountants and scientists,
just like diseases and fiscal crises.
