I remember the last night of the world

the night the computers died

the night it came to pass

that all men were truly created equal

facing an enemy that never heard

knew or cared about the meaning of

discrimination.

 

Humanity was laid waste

by a virus that rained down from the sky

like blood from heaven

causing our oceans to coagulate

drying into an unforgiving desert

unable or unwilling to support life.

 

I remember the last night of the world

when man became the minority

fighting for scraps at Mother Earth’s table

that now had greater creatures suckling at her bosom

while humanity struggled against extinction

already having faced genocide

several times over.

 

I remember the last night of the world

when the Gods proclaimed

“survival of the fittest”

the laughter died

and we fell to the bottom

of the food chain.
