The nuclear Doomsday Machine
Is not clean, or earth-friendly green;
It’s a time bomb that’s ticking,
And when it stops clicking,
Blows apart what's left of our scene.
Our unthinking nuclear spree
Provides a backup guarantee:
If not global heat,
Nukes assure we’re dead meat;
Not overly cautious, were we?
On top of what other things suck,
There'll be nuclear plants run amok;
When too much of this dread
Piles up on my head,
Sometimes I say, "WTF?"
There’s not much that really compares
To these serious real-life scares
For which we won’t contrive
Any way to survive,
But as usual, nobody cares.
