on “reincarnation”

why 
on earth
would anyone want to “come back”
to this
****ing
place?
one should consider themselves
lucky
to be over & done with the
mistake of their parents,
that accidental moment
where evolution burped &
spit out 
another human being,
adding to the historical pile of
flaws & errors
which make up our 
species &
to want to “come back” to it all,
to relive struggles or to have
brand new ones, to
“come back” as something else or
someone else,
um, isn’t it just a bit pretentious
to think that you’re sooooooo
important,
that this place would need another 
round of 
you?
do you think you get to go & give your
“god” a high-five & then
go back into the game
with a fresh jersey?
you live.
you die.
&
we, who are left here still alive & kicking,
are better off without another idiot
who thinks that they are going to
“come back” & 
play again,
as if this was a practice lap.
