The poem is about the aftermath of gaining a forbidden knowledge.

Rummaging the depths of a dusty sarcophagus,

I met the giants of the long-lost generation.

I had a glimpse of love and the birth of despair

And held the leaf—one they call papyrus.

I had the chance to see what is yet to be seen

Perhaps it will remain the missing page

That thousands of scholars dreamt for decades.

In this, I shall not claim the honour.

I too partake in the delivery of this rotten lie.

Being a product of pre-existing culture though,

Its concealment was never for me to decide.

I have just bloomed, for so long— a bud.

I have seen the light only for now.

Was it late? Blasts are the beliefs two hundred times!

The Earth is not known to anyone.

The creator and creation are fraud:

The writer is a sham!

A dethroned King— now broken down to ash.

The wind will not blow him back to life.

Those who have known this before me are cowards.

And time will soon declare, I too, will putrefy.

The flickering light will die out,

The papyrus will rot, the written lines will vanish

The incoming generations will live with fabricated lies

Or somehow I suppose, someone will bring a lighted torch

As for me, I will leave it here in the dark.

Let fate twist a little more ‘till the world has prepared

To abandon the chronicles and embrace a new episode.
