no one on board even knew…

3 seagulls at sunset

3 seagulls at sunset

three wise seagulls
sunset meditations before dark
did they hear some celestial music?
who would save them in a world gone mad?
do we need nature when technology
is the new god this century?
what missionaries would come
with their burnt offerings of good intentions?
what cornerstones fear and guilt made
in the foundation of these crumbling edifices
who would save them that believed in the sun?
what an opiate this cloak has become
no one on board even knew the ship was sinking fast…
