What will our legacy be?
|If we were not here at all,
What would visitors see on our earth?
Did we embroider the best of us all,
Since our birth?
What perceptions would excavating aliens have?
How would what they find define who we were?
Would they see youthful optimism and salve,
Or betrayal of our fellow person for sure?
What we do now is the aroma that will be left.
All we do must be sweet and pleasing.
To make sure our future burden of heft,
Does not leave others mourning and keening.
