One Day - Poem by LLM Mbatha

One day when everyone
Has shot down everybody
The birds and the beasts
Shall rule the world
And the jumping monkey
Will slowly evolve
To ‘flesh intelligence’
The twisted steel
The open graves
And the talking trees
Will tell our story…
If they’d care to notice
They'll learn more about
The consequence
Of violence
Or peace
and perhaps
Therefore, make a choice
Much different to ours...
