Earthly Surrender
poetic scribble by Bob Axell 2009


We wish for gloomy stars
We wish for brighter missery
We wish for all that's ours
Our wishes dug in history

We search within our words
The landmarks that we see
We claim as our own
As human territory

I'm not much for future plans
I'm not a fan of spiderman
We don't climb up to the top
We just live and then we rott

Complex figures and inbuilt systems
We can see, smell, and listen
We can even think and judge
But the earth it will not budge

For us.
