It is that date

Not unlike the date on which we found
Billion-year-old ruins on Ceres,
Who broke that world
East of Jupiter and West of Mars?
Was it a fusion flashlight,Like in that Star Trek episode,
roaming from star to star, extinguishing everyone?
Did they do it to themselves?
Like humanity has done,
In our own endearing way,
Time after time after time,
Leaving broken pieces of each other,

Like life wasn't hard enough.

So when we look at the asteroids,
And their stubs of buildings,
Their parks under vacuum and uncaring stars,
Let's learn this one lesson finally,

Folks: don't try this at home.
