Another Lemming for the Cliff

Updated on November 15, 2010

Tragic stupidity becomes the proud..

those little ones nature forgot to tell to live...

existing till they exist enough...

then ending all in one felt swoop...

as if to hear the dinner bell...

though no dinner would greet them...

you would think they knew that wouldn't you?

Would that they were alone...

in what they contemplate to do...

blunt they are to do what others do for spite...

or even wanton vice to grasp...

the dangers they should know and run...

the other way from what cruel nature sings...

Sirens, to the last they come...

though the humbly meek or weakly stupid, I cant tell...

who touch what one would think burned red...

don't laugh for their not the only ones...

who seem to wish themselves dead...

This world seems as a whole...

to want extinction most bazaar...

they speak to solutions that oppress their neighbor...

taking things way too far...

agency, they have no patients...

yet others do with no restraint what they aught not...

and should be stopped but are their twain jumping together now..

this world is a mucky bloody place...

where man takes man and women the same and causes them to bleed their life...

death and hell cannot refrain...

such willing lemmings for the cliff...

one would hope this refrain would change a thing...

I wish in vain...

for all I am is a whisperer of sorts...

Speaking for those who are not here...

yet I try all the same...

maybe lemming blood is my curse too...

I will go all the same...

until the last world drops from me...

falling with gore of those before...

or tears that in apathy refrain...

for they who jumped are no more...

past the ability to correct...

no monument to erect that wouldn't be covered with the mess...

if anyone can comprehend how to keep them up...

living lives of glee and joy,,,

when ways and ways do exist...

but wholly ignored are such ploys....

standing where they stood before....

Nooooooo splat...

another...

please God no more!

      Yep, a stellar poem title as we agreed. And the poem -- as poems will do -- made me think of all the human lemmings out there, running themselves over cliffs, as well as the furry little animals literally doing it. Loved the ending, too.

      This is a masterpiece. I am stopped in my steps to contemplate your path. The words raise my interest and cause my gate to wait. You have placed together strings of words that are thick with what shouldn't be,...I am impressed and provoked to think.
