Thinking Thoughts on a Thursday 5: More Poetry

Same as the last one, just different poems

The World is no longer Yours

 

The world is longer yours

You had a good run

You did your best

You spread across the land grew in number and variety

Then the sky heralded the end

A shooting star ended your reign

Winter fell, the world changed, but you could not

The small scurrying creatures thrived.

 

The world is longer yours

You stood upright, heavy of brow, square of shoulder

From trees to the cave, you have conquered this land

You made tools, you made fire

But now there are others, smaller but smarter

More cunning, more dangerous, they want to replace you

By breeding or murder, they will supplant you

The world is theirs, you are extinct.

 

The world is no longer yours

You mastered the world, conquered nature and stretched outwards

The clouds were passed, the sky left behind

The atom, the moon and the lightning all bound to your will

But now, like all who came before, you fear the future

Is is to be a virus, to cut a swath through you all

Will you turn your world desolate, unliveable by you and yours

Or will you create your successors, replaced by your mechanical children

Who knows, you had a good run, but all races come to the finish line.

 

 

Magic

 

Where is the magic?

 

Where is the magic in the everyday life?

Where is the magic in our monotonous strife?

 

Where is the magic, stuck in a traffic jam?

Where is the magic in a sandwich with ham?

 

Where is the magic in the grey cloudy sky?

Where is the magic? I hear you cry.

 

The magic is in the rising sun

The magic is there when we’re all having fun

 

The magic is there in that traffic jame

The magic that lets you dream when you can

 

The magic is in the shapes in the sky

The magic is in your mind, with which you can ask why
