So It Goes

“...on this sunny January day, I find I just don’t give a damn....”

The view of what’s coming’s less blurry,
So we’ve cut down on hurry and scurry;
Having looked at our fear,
Acceptance draws near—
And with it, a time of less worry.

So many things go on the fritz,
And in the end, everything quits;
We don’t worry our wits,
We’re not down in the pits:
It’s all goodit will hit when it hits.


"So it goes."
—Kurt Vonnegut, 106 times, Slaughterhouse Five

"What's going to happen is, very soon, we're going to run out of petroleum, and everything depends on petroleum. And there go the school buses. There go the fire engines. The food trucks will come to a halt. This is the end of the world."
—KURT VONNEGUT, JR., Rolling Stone, Aug. 24, 2006

Into chaos we soon will be hurled
As the Holocene end is unfurled:
We have the distinction
To watch mass extinction:
This is the end of the world.
