A future possibility.
 



3000 A.D. 

The misshapen Cave man slept in his animal skin clothe s Curled up on
the ground near a small fireside 

And dreamt of flying machines moving to and fro in 

The sky. He heard sirens blaring and saw 

Screaming people, with expressions of stark terror, 

Etched on their faces 

Running hither thither for safety 

From the falling missiles 

As tall steel-glassed structures 

Crumbled, destroying all beneath 

He saw a vehicle hurling towards him 

And he awoke with a piercing  scream that echoed 

Through the cold ,dank cave 

Shaken, he wondered where the dream came from 

Later that day, as he was hunting for food, which 

Was very scarce in the wasteland around him 

He kicked over a rusty can lying on the 

burnt out grass. He picked it up 

And looked at the strange markings on it 

Turning it around and about in his deformed hands. 

Being unable to read, he threw it away in disgust 

And continued on his hunt. 

The markings on the can read in a faded script : 

DONATED BY THE RED CROSS SOCIETY 2059
