Winner Takes All - Poem by Lawrence S. Pertillar

Insignificant and trivial wars fought.
As if somewhere in the Universe...
Emblems of declarations,
Will be bestowed upon those victorious.

As if within the Cosmos,
A spinning ball will enthrall other life forms,
Empressed how a release of ignorance addresses...
Differences of those inhabiting it.

And what maginficence will be produced from this?
A winner takes all?
Of what?
A certificate floating in space,
That validates the eventual implosion?
