The Last Man Living

When the last man living Is left alive on earth, And somebody knocks at the door – If I am the last man living I will be no more!

Who’s that? No answer. Who is that, I say? If you don’t intend to answer, Then – just – go – away.

Might you be human – Or might you be a ghost? Or can you be myself Imagining things, at most

If you’re somebody else, And I’m the last man alive, Just get on away from here – ‘Cause I don’t want no jive!

Langston Hughes
