Welcome to the 6th Extinction

Welcome to the 6th Extinction,
No reservation required.
A waiting seat at every table,
No shoes or ties requisite
And tipping is declined.

The thought is overwhelming
If we ever had a clue.
Well we have a clue or two,
Deeply buried in the litter
Of life's routine distractions.

Our gods shall be forgotten
As our history turns to dust,
Like Ozymandias and his legs
Alone and weathered in the sun.
Behold ye mighty, yet again.

For all things rise
And all things fall
And the cycle begins anew,
Ceaseless and ever changing,
Oblivious to our will.
