Coup de grâce

by thirdeyerhein

Running in place

our eyes unadorned

through them deep space

the light everlasting

so blinding, must retrace

these steps of ours

it is not a race

but a test of time

return to Thrace

examine their ways

greet and touch base

not hard to be kind

she’ll explain just in case

keep an open mind

and keep apace

read every sign

and do not displace

our World depends on mankind

which is our role to embrace

give our mother peace of mind

or else  face coup de grâce
