Even Losers

The battles fought
with words or guns
are all for naught
if everyone’s
on the wrong side
behind their pride
so all must fall

Changing Seasons

As trees go bare
and night comes fast
one is aware
that summer’s passed
and fall has fell
so now one dwells
in Christmas mist

Futility

I must say this
being human
is an abyss
where acumen
helps just so much
Even with such
we all will fall

Inspired by the 16 March 2021 prompt “This being human is” on the “dVerse – Poets Pub” site, though not following the direction to start the poem with the prompt. (Well, it doesn’t fit within the construct of my syllable count. 🙂)
