Some Say An 'Asteroid'


SOME SAY AN ‘ASTEROID’


Some say an asteroid
And others a sulphur sea-
Some say we will do it to ourselves
And others claim it is only a matter of nature’s time-
The sun will burn itself out
And earth will be eaten in the fire-

Some say it will not be us who goes on
But something else which came from us,
And that far from Earth
What we are will continue
In countless different directions.

I don’t know what will be with us.
I know before we know
I will die-
And all the questions of our end will be open
When my case is forever closed.

Another organism primate- hunter- man- machine
Humanity by itself alone
Has not saved.

Poem of the Day

poet Rupert Brooke

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
