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.

1984

Some folks smoke dope or get juiced
Because we will soon have vamoosed;
But I’m glad as hell
That the war’s going well,
And chocolate rations won’t be reduced.

A Brief Introduction to AGW

The trouble with increasing heat
Is it’s making us all obsolete;
Our food, plants and meat,
Won’t grow—they’ll deplete,
And we’ll die when there’s nothing to eat.

Captain’s Log, Ecclesiastes 1:2

Here lies the species humanity:
Did they die from some kind of insanity?
All their ability
Yielded futility—
Vanity, all is just vanity.

Everyone’s Cranky Lately

Taking sides and more quick to condemn,
Feeling grouchy and starting mayhem:
As “others” bring forces
To take “our” resources,
More and more of “us” turn into “them.”

Slogans

Worried about how we’ll cope,
We still thought we’d make it—but nope:
Paradoxically strange,
We had hope without change,
And now we have change without hope.

Don’t Be Depressed!

Don’t be depressed and in doubt:
Keep your head held up high and don’t pout;
Soldier on! Do it now!
I’ll let you know how—
Just as soon as I figure it out.

Strange Days

We’re surprised every time we detect
Something new in our lives getting wrecked;
We’re dismayed, bit by bit, 
As our world turns to shit—
But what else then did we expect?

Thought for the Day

Here are my thoughts for a penny:
The reasons to give up are many;
And if you should find
These thoughts in your mind,
Now is as good a time as any.

Politics Anymore

The world’s in the midst of rebranding,
Including re who is commanding:
The changes in clime
Bring a new paradigm—
The one that’s called “last person standing.”

EROEI #2

How much we still try might be tested
With an acronym doomers suggested;
It’s thusly discerned:
"Enjoyment Returned
On Energy Invested."

WASF

We used to complain that things sucked—
Then came doom, which we cannot obstruct;
Words can’t really express
Just how bad is this mess,
And so we say, “We are so fucked!”

Fuck Me

Fuck me, and the hope I contrive,
Fuck me running for being alive;
Fuck me hard, fuck me dead,
Fuck me sideways, I said,
Fuck my life, and all of that jive.

There’s Still Hope

You don’t need a research committee
To know that the future’s not pretty;
But still there is hope
That, with liquor and dope,
Things will seem somewhat less shitty.

Happy  New Year everybody!
