some of us are chickens

i’m not gonna
think  about
impending devastation
the way the
planet’s headedostrich
only leads
to aggravation
i’m not gonna
focus on
eventual demise
when i think about
these things
i’m paralyzed
not everyone’s
a fighter
not every soul
is spunky
some of us
are chickens
some of us
are monkeys
some of us
are younger
some have served
our terms
someone’s got to
check in on the worms
