All paper is gone

I quite like todays dailypost idea. An archeologist would not find any paper 500 years from now which is sad. What we have on paper would have mostly lost all its meaning. So I let my archeologist find a little poem from my mother engraved in stone

Und am Ende
wird gebuddelt ein Loch
da kommst du rein
Erde drauf
Das wars dann
mit dem Lebenslauf

by Christa Schaub

I took the meaning and wrote in English

That`s it
They dig a hole
deep into the ground
they put you in
throw a flower in
some showels full of dirt
in your face and onto thee
that was it
with your life
and your CV
