Leonid Meteor Storm by Edmond Weiss

This universe stalled

stunted, well-nigh aborted,
Barely a light year across,
We’re all neighbors,

And all relations,
One world, one sun,
That’s it,
And when the Empire of Frost
Stretches out its long shadow,

To assimilate every last hectare,
You surrender,

Give up your dreams, because
There is nowhere to run,

To start afresh,
But somewhere in the darkness,

When work’s done and the sun’s hid,
We are sharpening our sickles,
    and telling each other
        that anything
            is better than this.
