"The Last Poem on Earth" by Joseph Quiroz

If this is the last poem on earth

then I'm the saddest man on earth

right now because there are no

more poems after this!!!!!!!!


A nuke must be on its way

or three thousand of them
as Russia and the USA

built a crapload of them.


Thank you COLD WAR!!!!

You were both wrong.


I always had the hope

that poetry would live on

even after I'm six feet under.


But no, I'm living in a fucked up
generation with fucked up

people and we're all going to die

soon and dust can't write a poem.




What a tragedy it is to write

the last poem ever because

who will tell me if I suck

when everyone is dead???
