Life is Fair

Life is Fair

We all die — all forgotten.
No justice after death
not even in history books.

Our published works,
masterpiece or doggerel,
burn or molder.

The wind shreds
what remains to confetti,
celebrating our demise.

Monks and nuns,
bums and whores,
we’re all erased.

Cathedrals and crack houses
delivered by landslides
to the shore

where the ocean swallows
the wicked and the righteous
alike.
