In the future

no one will ask how you feel

emotions then will be so passé

gone like the hoop skirt

useless as an appendix they’ll be

and sadness then

will be quaint I expect

happiness too

and anger a thing

our grandparents knew

were you ever angry Grandfather

we’ll say

and Grandfather will smile

in a grandfatherly way

oh I got mad plenty back in the day

and we will all laugh

at how foolish it seems


in the future

we won’t feel a thing.
