The Guide

You might not have need of me,

In advanced technology

Your tech may translate

But it won’t transcend

The beauty of monument,

It won’t give you a beautiful moment,

Not while I guide you,

Through lost civilization,

Through forgotten culture

You might not fall in love

With a moment

Without my presence

I may be old fashioned

Not obsolete.

I may make you

Fall in love

With outdated stuff

Even me!
