Casting Shadows In Debris Field - Poem by Chris Lane

Just a few atoms away
A short space between us:

What have we produced?
Apart from our occupation.
Oh! Yes, you remind me:
Rocks take eons
To return to dust.

Momentarily in a flash:
Remembered I.
That yes! We were now shadows
Cast in dust:
And that just beyond
Lay debris field........

    Ah yes!
    Back to the dust...
    Return we must.

    Will we burn? ...
    Will we learn?

    Better into dust...
    Instead of ancient metallic rust.

    This is the whole lame jest...
    This is the most learned experienced of test.

    Earth's core heats up with cooled lava crust...
    This in time we will utterly trust.

    This fact we must...
    Only to believe and trust
    We must, we must.

    B'for life's endings we become broken and done totally are we a'bust...
    B'for death we lust, we lust.

    This fact is known that we trust...
    Yes we must, great starving lust we must.

    Great poem Chris. A great poem inspires others to write.
    Hadda give ya a tenner here. God bless all poets-MJG.
