Tonight's Café Poem

I failed to save the universe

I failed to save the modern world
My plans for rescue not unfurled
To kingdom come we all were hurled
From dire straits we stay uncurled
We all got twirled

I didn't even save my street
There are no more people to meet
No friendly faces here to greet
No parties in the summer heat
We all got beat

I failed to save the folk of earth
It is the end and not the birth
Of future there's indeed a dearth
I watch my planet's dwindling girth
There is no mirth

I failed to save the universe
I know that couldn't sound much worse
Forgive me if I sound perverse
Or even get a little terse
I'll get me hearse
