Last Age of Humanity


97

Let us abandon then our gardens
And go home, Earth does not care
The trials of her fruit, her childrens’
Strange makeup, the way we
Cannot balance for her long reign

Let us abandon then our cities here
And return to the stars, Earth does not
Mind if our heroes depart
Let us go home, and sit in the sitting room
And admire the history of our kind

Before it is too late, before extinction’s bell
Out of the glittering bay
Of our countless genocides and mistakes
Leaving countless forests barren
And burying darkness of our blood upon the plains

Let us abandon then our memories & fears
When from the splendid dead, we see what
We have at last become, part-machine
It is the end of an era, of almighty sex
Now evolution pursues new paths

Leaving the leftovers to no dominion
Let us abandon then our genes
For clones, hybrids, new models
Of what life could have, should have, been.
