What if everyone hustling

by right now

that will die

over the next 50 years

were to drop dead

where they stood


Then everyone else, kneeled.

How much progress would be lost?

With any luck, we'd still

have the lightbulb, television,

frozen dinners, and lycra.

All essential things

in the fight

to keep from dying where we stand

and take back the 50 years,

never questioning who those years

belonged to anyway.
