terminally ill

terminally ill [1]
by steven ick

terminally ill
nothing you can do
not a lot of days (or ways or praise) for me and you
not a long-term chance when short-term profit pays the bill
nothing you can do (it’s true), when
terminally ill

  • planet earth is being ravaged by short-term, ego-maniac-tic forces that crave short-term gratification and short-term thrill.
  • maybe it is just an outcropping of self-centeredness, striving for survival and thrival.
  • maybe it is just us, communally acting in separation.
  • like a sports-team fan-base acting together (in the communal defeat of a rival), humanity – or, at least, the most powerful aspects of humanity – has chosen short-term victory over long-term symbiosis.
  • like a cancer, short term thrival often results in a... terminal illness.
