Can’t shake a proclivity:

That science fiction and fantasy

Are mixing with reality.

 

Mordor lingers here,

And the atmosphere

Is ripe and ready for

Asteroids to appear

 

And the chapter’s ending,

In the final part,

Of the long engrossing series

With darkness at its heart.

 

There are Saurons and Frodos,

Gandalfs and Aragorns,

Astronauts exploring,

Greedy scientists, or forlorn,

Gobblins and Gibbons warring,

With elves and dwarven born,

Milliards of characters raging

In some Shakespearean storm.

 

I laugh, a foolish notion

And squirm ashamedly.

Has my dramatic love of genre

Divined this fantasy? 

 

And still a feeling cant be shook

That we’re living in the pages

Of a profound dystopian book.
