Something, I Suppose

Let me read you something,
Something I discovered.
I found it in the attic,
Or possibly the cellar;
Although it may have been
In the cluttered basement.
I dug holes in the ground—
It may have been there,
Like a time capsule
Or buried pirate's treasure.
A bottle washed ashore—
Perhaps the piece which
I must read was there.
In any original place,
It holds words of utmost
Importance to all.
So let me read you something,
Something I discovered.
Oh, but literacy is learned,
Not an inherent talent,
So, I do lament,
I have forgotten what it says.
