The Code Behind the Mirror

I discover a piece of folded-crooked paper
Under/ behind the standing mirror
It reads:

shrimp on barbie
dairy great
(hard time now)
adrenaline drives
spaniards

And I smile and put it back
Because someday
Someone historian might mistake it
For a code
Or a key
To understanding this past civilization

And wouldn’t that be funny?
