Frackers

Those bastards who’re spoiling the soil,
They really make my blood boil;
I’d tear out their guts
And cut off their nuts,
Except that I still want the oil.

Heraclitus Says

The old days again might be nice,
But according to ancient advice,
For that you can’t prep,
Because no one can step
Into the same river twice.

What Should I Do Now?

Don’t follow what anyone said:
Find your own best way instead;
Above all, don’t heed
Every word that you read,
Including these words you just read.

Accepting One’s Niche More

The more alpha animals solely
Dominate the more lowly,
But humans resent
Being bowing-down bent
Unless they’re convinced they’re more holy.

We Can’t All Get Along

Simple tribes in which we used to dwell
Evolved a hate-other-tribes spell;
For a while, that worked fine,
But now races combine,
And it doesn’t work out quite as well.

Commiseration

Daniel says: “I am of the opinion that all dialog post-acceptance of NTE is manifestly commiserative.”

I sit here and wait for the end
With no more than an ear to lend;
For what’s now in store,
We don’t need much more,
‘Cause it won’t be too long now, my friend.

Going Out

We sit around and we wait
For doom, which we know is our fate;
And since doom’s a state
Which is not really great,
Some will bail before it’s too late.
