The Last Deadly Day On Earth

The sun shines on bloodstains,
the oceans gently rock
the bloated float of fish,
empty timbers lurch to rest
on still beasts, on idle men-
prey, predator, scavenger,
plant, fungus,
low and high values
all summed on every day
until the result, finally, is nil
and with the defeat of death
so too concludes life
