A beautiful poem!

I am a big fan of Cuttlefish poetry. I read his dinosaur poem an hour ago. Then I was silent for a few minutes. My eyes got wet. Then I read it again and again.

*
The dinosaur told me “be careful”
The dinosaur told me “beware”
The dinosaur told me “it’s happened before,
And the universe just doesn’t care”

The dinosaur told me “Extinction
Is the safest, conservative bet”
The dinosaur told me “don’t think you’re immune
Just because it has not happened yet.”

The dinosaur gave me a warning
She told me to share it with you
It won’t be an asteroid this time around—
We’ll be killed by the things that we do

The dinosaur pointed to history
And biology books on the shelves
The dinosaur told me what’s different this time
Is, we’re doing it all by ourselves

The dinosaur told me “be careful”
The dinosaur told me “it’s true”
The dinosaur said, “it’s a fight to the death,
And the enemy this time… is you.”

Poor Neanderthals!

They had larger eyes than us. Their brains worked more for seeing things during long dark winter in Europe. Our brains worked more for social networks. [Read more…]
