Stars Above, Christmas Lights Below… (aka Mile Marker #749)

Posted: 2016-12-18 in ©ddr7hd, Blick!, Да, я понимаю, People Suck, Polina, Space, Thoughts For The Night

I looked up at the cloudless night sky,

impressed, as ever, by the stars, planets

and other phenomena on show.

And I was reminded how little we humans know,

how much of what we think we know

turns out to be wrong

(take perceptions of Pluto) …

and can we even be sure of what stars really are?

Then my eye caught a twinkling, down below, at ground level:

Christmas tree lights.

Yeah, that’s about the epitome of human achievement,

the sum of what we are “good” at,

that and exploiting others,

getting fat

and trashing Earth.
