Accomplishment


All mountains conquered,
We have go-karted on the Moon
Sent our metal mini-monsters off
To squat on Mars; dispatched a toy car
To bump and scrutinize the local rocks.
Out in space the metal flowers
Spread their petals rectilinear,
Suck energy from the distant Sun,
Spit digitals into our parabolic cups
Which detail all the ways of Hell
Which freeze and burn beyond our Earthly shell.
With all our wisdom thus deployed
Our dynamic manic here below
Seems focused, pointed to demolish
This enclave, tiny, fragile,
Unique with life
In cosmic aridity
As if to flaunt incredible stupidity.

Poem of the Day

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
