Whatever

When the gems are gone,
And the diamonds crack,
When all the mines have caved in
And the wood is dead,
The animals bark and howl,
“Whatever.”

When the gas is burned,
And the half-lives die,
When the grid is smashed
And the bullets are extinct,
The people finally live
Again.


Kind of post-apocalyptic for day 10. Just finished watching Snowpiercer. An Ayn Randish movie out of South Korea (with Ed Harris and Tilda Swinton) about class warfare on a train that houses the last of humanity. The hero of the film has a line, "Bullets are extinct." He also has a line, "I know that babies taste best." That line wasn't as inspirational.
