The poetic city: “The Answer”

The Answer

If it’s true that one day 
the universe will disappear, 
along with everything in it,
One can’t help wondering, 
“Why bother?” 
And if everything that has existed 
will disappear without a trace 
that it ever had existed,
What difference would it make 
what one does or doesn’t do? 
The answer is in the asking.
