Forceful Ones Of Us - Poem by douglas scotney

In this time
of too many of us for our own good
and the good of many others
forceful ones of us
are surviving
at the expense of others of us
and of other species

in full knowledge
that their own survival is temporary
and belief
that our replacement
is only possible
at the expense of us
and of other species.

Topic(s) of this poem: survival
