Do You Remember?

Do You Remember?

Do you remember when
the future stretched endlessly ahead,
when the older looked forward
to a contented retirement
and the younger
to all the joys of life and living.

Now the mists are down
swamping everyone
in a gloomy miasma
and the future is closing in
moving closer and closer,
a cell-like structure
of mutating cells.
