Extinction by Raquel Morris

Poem

Shouting loud
your words of hate
that permeate the air
angry people
congregate
failure
to see
the truth that unfolds
Even you don’t know
what your hands hold.
Disvaluing life
death hangs in the air
you continue to dare
future.
Brings your fate
you live without care.
Inhaling our fear
we welcome our fates
as we open our beer
“Cheers!”
Goodbye to all we hold dear.
I feel it in my body
I feel it in mind too
Sensational failure
a big snafu
“we didn’t know he’d do this.”
His followers will say
to move ahead
we’ll have to look away
towards our future
away from our past.
History repeats itself,
we won’t last.
