Some Societies Don’t Succeed (& Die Out) 2013

Some Societies Don’t Succeed (& Die Out)

 

Serbia,

Albania,

Romania,

Russia when

Collecting and collectivized;

New York City – glamorized;

Wall Street,

Stocks and bribes;

Europe’s Union;

Diverse tribes,

Countless sects,

Deserts, plateaus,

Dialects

Domiciled the planet round:

Any clique that’s too elusive,

Any band that grows too large,

Clubs exclusive,

Groups that charge,

Marginal

Or just corrupt;

Lavish, wasteful,

Or just not

Industrious enough,

-Isms driven, too spread out,

Democratic

Or despotic;

Canon,

Custom,

Weather,

Greed,

Curiosity

And trade:

Qualities that steer and lead

To vanishing.

Some societies succeed

And die away.

But one man left,

That’s all you need –

Someone left alive and well –

Someone left to tell.
