Human Nature

 

if all the young people died overnight

would the eighty year olds send the fifty year olds

off to war?

 

she sat on the couch, watched the news

sipped her tea and decided YES

 

it was inevitable

like the death of our species

fifty years later

 

musing on the fall of empires

 

she baked a cake

 

in celebration

 

of nature

 

and other nasty things
