new moon

if we’re lucky
we’ll see the moon
rise along with the sun
any day now
dismissing any worries
it was blown
to pieces
by a barrage
of nuclear warheads

whether natural or man-made

streams are dying up
the rivers receding
winter is coming
should we be worried

missiles are sailing
nukes are on the move
sitting outside
the danger zone
should we be worried

tent cities crop up
accommodating despair
the world revolving
as people flee
what they thought
was their home
destinations unknown
should we be worried

birds and butterflies
migrating southward
before the winter kill
struggling against
prevailing winds
whether natural
or man-made
[should we be worried]
