Nuclear Meltdowns

Someday the whole grid will fail,
And there won’t be a way to derail
The meltdown heat
Which will leave no retreat
To continue the human tale.

For plants still in operation,
Unexpected electric cessation
Of short duration
Could cause activation
Of radioactive damnation.

Each abandoned reactor, no doubt,
Eventually will start to spout
Stuff which can spread
And make people dead
Once electric power runs out.

If people would just pay attention,
We could stop our wayward invention,
But not those threats forming,
Like global warming,
And others too many to mention.
