Fate Is A Bittersweet Mistress: Poems 1 To 5
Author: Colin Stewart
Epilogue for a deadly germ
made our life a shorter term
in this requiem for the human race
soon to disappear without a trace!
In the priceless real estate of your mind
peace and contentment is in a bind
when the window to your soul packs a punch
with a sign that reads 'Out to lunch!'
Mirth and melancholy had to share
the duality of joy and despair
in the songs which endured and carried the day.
These mixed emotions are here to stay!
Seeking Utopia was my ultimate intention
through unparalleled heights of peerless convention
and through autonomy it's a clear contention
I can do without human intervention!
Many a great man did not anticipate
that providence would arrive a little too late
as history would record this important date
when the variables of time sealed their fate!
