#2,689 Drake’s Equation

Mike Bell/ May 18, 2023/ www.mikebellpoems.com

Just twelve trillion trillion
planets [or more] – but we
are lone fuckers intent on
self-destruction’s rewards
over clearing plastic debt
in time [Let’s consume all
we can] – buy shitty stuff –
add value to ourselves by
putting up ego extensions
& ache for building plots –
it’s about cash & self-love
& taking all you can – kids
look on as ancients swing
& dog for likes – imploded
black holes suck us off as
time retires to retirement
homes [& smelly lounges]
