Fungus Clouds

Stop for a moment and
Imagine the explosion
On the way. Since when do
Craters look happier than
Homes? Is triumph found but
Only when architecture
Is left smoldering in
Some atomic pit? Some deep
Dead land, waste land, no land?
Is one victorious cheer
Worthwhile but only
When one hundred million cries
Are silenced forever?
Is there no cause to smile
But when rejoicing for
The sadness of another?
That's stupid.
Death is no solution
Save for those instigating
Death. There will be no peace
So long as nihilism
Plays such an important
Role in our tranquility.
That's stupid.
You're stupid.
