Bellum Omnium Contra Omnes

… and it was so, as it was every November,

when each leaf nestled into its new pad,

collapsed upon the ground, mulch for a

new season’s growth, in awe we all are,

at nature’s beauty and swell, to make a

trip to natural lands, and to soak it in eve

after morning, in delightful arrogance,

which is suffering in gratitude and grace,

of autumn’s shivers and savoy, as our

inevitable end, in spite of how much we

are convinced of our value, is the same

as leaf that we admire, as ugly as it is…
