Kubler-Ross Depression Redux

Eventually one can’t ignore
How bad is the shit that’s in store;
It’s never much fun,
But it’s got to be done:
I’m back again working Stage 4.

Save the World?

Save the world? Naw, might as well quit:
It’s over, we ain’t savin’ shit;
Instead, let’s reflect
On the places we’ve trekked,
And start writing up our obit.

It’s Over

You can wipe that frown from your brow,
We got here, though no one knows how;
Whatever you do,
We’re not going to pull through,
So relax: it’s all over now.

Blame Game

Blame is a mental invention
Which justifies cruel intention;
Due to guilt removal,
There’s more self-approval
And less psychological tension.

“Senseless” Killing

“Is there a difference in the brains...?”

Neural pathways inside our head
Come from genes and the way we are bred,
But we won’t understand
How our actions are planned
Before we all wind up dead.

Plenty of Hate

“...the undercurrents of hatred thrumming just below the surface are likely to explode out into the open and threaten to consume us all.”

We’ll run out of food for our plate,
And places where heat’s not too great,
We’ll run out of debate
When it’s clearly too late,
But we’re not going to run out of hate.

Method in the Madness

Guy McPherson asks, “Is it possible for a scientist to die from a broken heart?”

Anyone’s heart can go bust
In a world that’s unfair and unjust,
But with science we see
The way things have to be,
And how they proceed as they must.

Faith vs. Reason

We evolved from bestiality
Without formal logic mentality,
So our likely response
To reverse Renaissance
Will be faith trumping rationality.

Normal Baseline Mind

Evolution has come to prescribe
Human life in a small, simple tribe,
So it doesn’t improve
When the mind tries to groove
To a complex industrial vibe.

Crazy Talk

When telling folks how things have changed
Results in your feeling estranged,
You’re being observant:
Though you think you’re fervent,
They think you’re completely deranged.

Anticipatory or Preparatory Grief

Our preps include psychic numbing,
A kind of emotion down-dumbing;
We use it as pre-
And we hope helps deal with what’s coming.

Doomer Forums Can Help

A doom forum’s good for your brain:
When you’re freaking, it helps you maintain;
Regular attendance
Can lead to dependence,
But at least you won’t go insane.

A Couple of Weeks?

“Mysterious bubbles are rising up out of an Assumption Parish bayou....Boudreaux has taken samples of the bubbles and sent them off for testing. Those samples are expected back in the next couple of weeks.”
H/T: Kathy Cassandra

Some lab tests by which one discerns
Basic nature, a good doomer learns;
A quick test for gas
From sea, tap or ass:
Light a match, and see if it burns.
