Too Many Aces

Too Many Aces

Peace is Purpose, Nonviolence is Strength,  Diversity is Unity, Empathy is Empowerment

~~~~~

When the night descends in screams of terror,
minus hope, our world shatters, breaks open,
with the fragility of a DDT damaged eggshell,
who will hear our wailing, save the darkness?
With our cleverness, our hubris failed and fled,
who, if any will survive, naked and forgotten?
Rest not assured we are counted among them,
to end up upon the top, when nature shuffles
odd pips and faces, mixes our ill-ordered deck.
All the aces up our sleeve will not turn a trick,
nor will we finesse our fate and win the game.
