R.I.P.

The ghost boat has sailed away
with what was left of humanity.

Stars pulled blankets over their heads
and shuddered in the void.
The moon tightened the blindfold
of the night over its eyes.
The wind slunk into the trees,
plugging its ears with boughs.

But the guns didn’t stop firing.
And the children didn’t stop bleeding.
But the guns didn’t stop firing.
And the children didn’t stop dying.

The ghost boat just sailed away
with what was left of humanity.
