Lost Love - Poem by Stan Petrovich

I have lost my love of mankind, for his predominance and unstable
stewardship of our inadvertently unstable planet earth;
the errors that have occurred cannot be reversed: ask the polar bear,
ask the space junk falling on our heads. Ask the dreary sun
that will fade soon in the clouds of carbon we created.

That one has children and engulfs them with love
is no more that a indiscreet lesson for the coming death of us all.
