The Last Dodo Bird

       THE LAST DODO BIRD
How would it be, 
     if mighty planet Mars,                     
   were taken from the universe, 
by one of passing stars?      

And if another came to stay, 
   new mass, and larger than      
      the space of Earth and Sun combined, 
    unheard since time began?

And if 'twas done quite suddenly,
  and right before our eyes,
so close and yet so far away,
    we never came to realize?  

Upsetting balanced forces made,
   that hold our lives in place,
      that to perfection, push and pull 
 to keep the proper space; 

or if the Sun were split in two;
    for burning cannot last
 beholding such a sight, we'd know 
       the end was coming fast!  

Do you suppose the dodo bird, 
   in looking for its mate,     
knew all the world was ending then,
      extinction now its fate?

And lying down,to feel the grass 
   and earth beneath its head
 the only world it ever knew, 
        and soon it would be dead;     

its stupid eyes beholding things, 
            it never saw before,     
 and wonder where are other worlds, 
     or were there anymore?   

I can't imagine anything 
           more sadder than the cry           
      of the last dodo bird, 
                to mate who's dead nearby!           

Who knows the world is over now,
       but that it won't be missed,
   and forces holding it to life 
            had now ceased to exist!      

Tis just the same as we might feel, 
     if knowing of our end,      
       and helpless, I'd call out to you, 
  just as our dodo friend.
