IC

There’s plenty of vilification 

Of Industrial Civilization,

But its wide application

Provides confirmation 

Of its compelling gratification.

Call It Midnight

What word tells folks what it’s about,

When extinction’s no longer in doubt?

Midnight’s not right,

But still, after midnight, 

We're gonna let it all hang out.

Tired of Politics?

Fed up with political scenes?

Much worse is what next supervenes

[von Clausewitz quotation]:

“War is the continuation

Of politics by other means.”

Apprehension

We all know that something is wrong:

It’s overshoot, coming on strong;

Despite some dismay,

I’m still sort of okay,

But I sure won’t be okay for long.

Where Do We Come From? What Are We? Where Are We Going?

1. 

Evolution.

 

2. 

Meat sacks, made out of molecules, 

Which bounce around strictly by physics rules;

Within these arise

Nerve events which comprise

Life, as experienced by human fools. 

 

3. 

You know.

The End of Rule of Law

I liked the time when we had laws

Which folks mostly followed because

Nature, they say,

Works one basic way:

Red both in teeth and in claws.

Envy

Envy’s a sin, it’s been said,

It really can mess with your head,

And we can foresee

How’s life’s going to be:

The living will envy the dead.
