Nobody knows, when the end will come,
When an individual’s days are done,
Or the world will face oblivion
Through Mankind’s self-annihilation
Or God’s or Nature’s own destruction.
Can medicine hold back degradation?
Can faith determine God’s intention?
Will some scientist’s invention
Halt the coming devastation
Or eco-warrior save creation?
Given that all things pass away
Live for now. As the Ancients say:
Carpe diem - seize the day.
In other words: while the sun
(Still) shines, make hay.
