Done

“Make the most of each day,” it is said,
“With the time left before we’re all dead!”
Well, I’ve had it—the stuff
That I’ve done is enough:
I say “Fuck it!” and go back to bed.

Bargaining via “If”

If I could grow wings, I would fly,
But I can’t—that’s why I don’t try;
If there wouldn’t be doom,
We’d be fine, I assume,
But there is, and we’re all going to die.

Acceptance: It’s Simple!

Here’s a truth which you can’t disavow:
In the end, life is no cat’s meow;
It’s getting quite late
For accepting your fate—
Let me know if you figure out how.

Lent

A doomer was asked if he knew
What, for Lent, he was going to do;
He said that he’d give
Up the will to live
(It’s funny because it’s true).

The Stupid

The pre-Renaissance returns
And logical thinking adjourns;      
The strength of the brute  
Rules every dispute:
The stupid! It burns! It burns!

Misapprehension

Oh the weather outside is storming
And habitats keep transforming;
And since, as we know,
We’ve no place to go,
Good thing there’s no global warming.

Back to the Thirties

If not learning the past’s what you do,
You’ll repeat what folks had to go through;
But with history’s view,
It’s regrettably true:
You’re still doomed to repeat it now too.
