Survival of the fittest.
It doesn't matter
who's right or wrong.
Go ask the Dodo bird.

Go ask your neighbors
in Nagasaki & Hiroshima.

Go ask your child's
stuffed toy.

Go ask the dead
in the cemetery
& ask them
if they wanted it this way?

Gomar's "Specie"
"fittest" -I think that judgement call is why everything is so f**ked up.

concise. I liked the harshness of the bombing followed by the softness of a child's bear. brings the point in effortlessly.
nice job.

best to you-

I liked the weary, exhausted and all around fed-up feel of this poem. Very nice work.

Specie comments
Thanks all for commenting.

Sounds like this one was kind of hit or miss?

Pen: You may query more than just the dead. But if the dead could speak - truely speak - I think we'd get quite an earful.

Up or Down
Really bold reading, not really "in your face" but it is "in your back yard" and "In your home".

This poem is like the tip of the iceberg; if one is a believer (religiously), then the dead are constant consultants to the living. If one is not a religious person then of course there are no easy answers.

I see this as a kind of middle ground, and like you say Bob, either it hits or it misses. With me, neither, it is still going on.

Enjoyed your poem very much-all I could think about is that it doesn't really f**cking matter. What's going to happen; is going to happen, we have no control (although most of the time I'd like to think I do).
