Old Dogs


they have
left me
with nothing

I am the culprit
and have sadly taken
self destruction
to the extreme

I know
that all I see
in the world about me
is the waste
of greed
and humanity

I close
the curtains
and turn off
the light
curl up
in the darkness
and drift
ever inward

perceptions of life
dimming to black
as I depart
this wobbling orb
and become
one with
the beyond
