Nerds of deities, writing untold words.
Deities, and many creeds, had scriptures.
Scribes endeavours, more oft left unread.
Only in these modern times translators,
Inspired scholars take on the challenge
Text, some as yet still remain an enigma
Scribed scrolls, walls, for millennia hid
Tarnished some their legibility daunting
Across the planet earth caves can reveal
Records albeit drawings the start of script
Tentative steps carved, drawn on cave walls
Silent witness, history in words transcribed
Inspired by And So It Starts
