Found Poem: Surviving a Changed World
Josean Massucco, Meya Yangzhen, Chris Knight, and Cate Fisher
 
In the span of human history,
Life is like the blink of an eye.
Before the world ends,
Try to survive.
 
They saw the world end and another begin.
There’s just survival left,
An orange-less world.
 
Searching,
What drives them,
What moves them.
 
They only want to be seen,
Then they want to be remembered.
Memory and fame,
They’ll never truly die.
