Will your descendents be on board the spaceship?

Posted to Action Poetry

Will your kindred be driving the space ship?
Will they be in the engine room?
Will they be in the captain's quaters?
Will they be left without life boats should it hit a comet?

When the earth melts down in 3 or so more billion years,
What are your progeny going to say they did to win?
When we all look back at all of the wars and movie stars,
Who will our tales most resemble? A crow and a fox?

Fables of black space pocked by white lights in the night,
Dreams of escaping existence for just another moment.
Lost innocence incensed the creator of old testament lore.
In came the winds from the next solar system to cradle mankind.
