“The Best We Can Do” (a poem)

A society that kills its old people,
and suffocates its children,
is not fit to live in,
or worth saving.

So we must do everything we can
to change it; and, if we can’t, we’ll leave it
all behind, so it can kill
itself, in service to its masters.

And then we’ll find a way to see to them.
