HOW THE HAT?
by STEPHEN KARNAGHAN

There is the wilderness lay a hat …
in memory of …
of a time when …
but no more …
there were people you know …
there were people and dogs and trees …
yes, yes …
and music and painting …
it was all here …
it was all here …
art was to be the saviour of humanity …
art …
but it didn’t …
everything gone ..
and they knew it …
yet …
arrogant …
thinking they have to …
but no …
they wouldn’t …
oh they wouldn’t …
they would want to be paid …
money …
money …
people prayed to money …
yet it was powerful …
then one minute later …
one minute …
money was worthless …
you …
you …
praying to your phone …
do you not realize …
do you not realize …
cannot you think of your family …
your children …
don’t you want …
and you sir …
you sir …
with your brain in porn …
do you not realize …
there is no time for one last …
all electricity gone ..
in one minute …
gone …
one minute …
this minute …
this minute of history …
in the history of the earth …
other living things …
other intelligent living things ..
will find this minute …
will find this hat minute …
they may ponder …
they may record the ending …
as history …
recording the arrogant species …
destroying everything …
destroying themselves …
thinking they were …
thinking they were magnificent …

Yet I … I write in my book … with pen … unlike the hat … book lost after my death … in a recycled bin … like the human race … biodegradable … then how the hat?
