Updating Einstein

“I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.”

He knew lots about science—and more, 
But he didn’t know doom was in store:
Due to NTHE, 
After World War III,
There’ll be no one to fight World War IV.

Ancient Zen Wisecracks

“To be is to do.” — Socrates
“To do is to be.” — Sartre
“Do be do be do.” — Sinatra

“What to do,” asks the doom devotee,
 “With the onrushing shit potpourri?”
The answer, my friend,
For approaching the end,
Is not to “do,” simply to “be!”

Accepting Doom

I’m struggling here, day by day,
To hold the depression at bay;
I don’t know what to do
(And maybe you too?)
But we’re all going to find our own way.

Hospice Hotel

Well, now, if your laughter leaves you 
And you got doom’s tale to tell
Well, just take a walk down Doomer Street
To Hospice Hotel
Where we’ll, we’ll watch it together, baby,
We’ll watch it together,
We’ll watch it together till we die.

I Smoke Alone

Extinction studies have shown
Our survival chances are blown;
With my friend Mary Jane
Reducing the pain,
I prefer to be smoking alone.

New Year’s—A New Beginning

Look ahead, and world-wide well-being,
Peace on earth, with folks all agreeing,
No hate and no war—
All these things and more
Are what we’re not going to be seeing.

Senility and the Art of Being in the Here and Now

Achieving transcendence at last—
I know how, ‘cause I’m getting there fast:
I’m comfortably numb
About what’s still to come,
And I can’t recall shit from the past.
