We’re Fucked

We need to repeat these words when
Doom seems so beyond human ken;
It’s crazy to say it,
So we must replay it
Again and again and again.

Jungle Morality

Changes in our reality
Cause changes in our mentality;
Jungle law is restored
When we cannot afford
The luxury of a morality.

Life’s hard, but yet we’re more tested
Now that our energy’s crested:
Increasing crappiness
Decreases Happiness
Returned On Energy Invested.

Predation, Starvation, or Suicide

Our living depends on predation:
Without it, we end in starvation;
If those don’t look good,
The other choice would
Be to end it with self-termination.

Reducing Cognitive Dissonance

When folks start to mess with your head
By talking about [insert number here] years ahead:
Dissonance goes away
As soon as you say,
“In [insert same number here] years we’ll be dead.”

Becoming extinction astute
Means that you’ve got to uproot
Most of your mind
Because doom, you will find,
Makes everything else kind of moot.

Global warming is how it begins:
Stuff heats up, and the populace thins;
We'll watch flesh become meat
When we can’t throw off heat
And we’re cooking inside our own skins.

Our world’s already a mess,
But as we watch doom coalesce,
We’re nevertheless
Forced to address
Ever more meaninglessness.

Prepping Lesson

At first, I thought I would prep smarter
By buying booze bottles for barter;
But I was naive:
Now I’ve come to believe
That plan should have been a nonstarter.

I think once the doom dam has burst,
Things will quickly progress to the worst;
Not wanting to lose it,
I’ve started to use it,
And I’m drinking the good stuff first.

The guru, when asked, “What is good?”
Replied, “Carry water, chop wood!”
When neither remain,
He’ll be forced to abstain,
Unable to do what he should.
