SEQUEL to LIFE and Wordle 133*

What happened after the Creation
Darwin called evolution,
the development of species –
diverse beyond expectation.

When humanoids appeared
they lurched towards damnation.
Greed and sin and politics
bring  earthly desolation,

ruination of the climate
extermination of species;
man teeters on the brink
of extinction by another Big Bang.

Back to the drawing board.*

    With all of what had happened through the millennium, things appear to be somewhat unsettled. it appears so but the hand of Providence is there to determine who gets what! Great write Viv!



  2. Viv, elegant commentary on the human treatment of the planet. It’s all about the hubris, after all. Last line rocks! Amy

    Dark but true! Back to the drawing board!

    powerful and eerily right on target, Viv. No trace of Wordle in your poem to boot. Nicely done…

    Very dark follow-up. Nicely done.

    The Wordle was brilliant, and by coupling it with this you have arrived at sheer genius. Creation, evolution, and dissolution all encapsulated with such economy of words – and some of them were imposed, anyway! I am filled with admiration.

    Yes indeed..we seem intent on imploding..


  8. Humans do seem to make a mess of things, don’t we? Over and over.

    Life is a circle. We think we are traveling a straight line but we are merely become manure for who comes next. Lets hope there will be more intelligent creatures next time.
