Random Poem:

Miss Universe? No I won't

like the inside of the winner:
black, vast, empty,
echoing with bitterness.
Intelligent matter
few and far between.
The fultility of life reflected
in her concluding statement as she dies,
alone, old, and ugly:
"World peace"
"Was never achieved," it adds.
And with a slight smile, the universe lays her to rest
under cold burning pins of light.
