Death Of Mankind? ……[extinction Poem For November Showcase; How Shall Mankind End, If It Does? ? ; Musings] - Poem by Bri Edwards
Will Humans die off quickly, or slowly peter out***?
I think the latter; I’ve, of that, little doubt.
I don’t mean individual humans; I mean Mankind.
They’ll peter out till …..not one human soul you’ll find.
Sure, widespread nuclear war could do it more quickly I suppose,
OR “global warming”. [Do you want your body cooked or ‘froze’? ]
A brand new pandemic spread by birds or bugs?
And THEN there'd be no more Moms or Dads giving hugs!
My theory is: “Men (with machines) will merge, …..
[with a few human technicians cloned] until, on the verge of …..
EXTINCTION, machines will then decide Men aren’t the ‘right stuff’,
….which may leave God AND the Devil, BOTH, in a huff*****.”
