Why should I wash out this can?
How much good is a recycling plan?
Should I wash out this jar?
It seems kind of bizarre,
With the shit shortly hitting the fan.

Pumps in the mountains lift rain,
Soap’s produced, shipped via train...
I stand at the sink,
And think on the brink,
While tap water pours down the drain.

Recyling is noble and true,
It’s guidance for now that we’re through:
There’s less use of might
To abuse all in sight
When it gives people something to do.

Sarah Connor

You’re already dead, ‘cause ahead,
Too much heat will become too widespread;
Think you’re safe and alive?
You’re not going to survive—
Everyone! You’re all fucking dead!

"Emotional Return on Emotion Invested"

#1 best seller book pop psychology sensation!


Extraction costs limit supply—
If you like, you can check it with Guy;
It’s too late to deny
Energy’s tie
To the notion we’re soon going to die.

Part II: Relationships

Sometimes, as much as you try,
Some people just pump you dry;
Take this and apply:
If you don’t say bye-bye,
Push it too much, you could die.


Analogy’s now explained why
Things in your life go awry;
But this book, with doom nigh,
Wasn't such a good buy,
Because soon we’re all going to die.

Was It Worth It?

Kathy C says: Is the wonder worth the pain is my question.

A life without examination
Isn’t worth it [Socrates citation];
But I’m not persuaded
It gets much upgraded
By closer investigation.

We’ll die when our world gets too hot,
Leaving nothing, nil, zilch, diddly squat;
What did we gain
For all of our pain?
Was it worth it? Maybe. Maybe not.

“Is it worth it?” The question is key;
For some few, it sure seems to be,
But probably for most,
Properly diagnosed,
It’s not all it’s cracked up to be.

“It’s not worth it” is misunderstood
As to say something one never should;
Never having been born
And having to mourn
Would have been at least as good.

For me, I’d say no, but as seer:
Till now we did not disappear
Because joy outweighed cares
For enough breeding pairs
Or else we wouldn’t be here.

Stopping My Shoulds on Slowly Leaving

Hope, impassioned and deep,
Made promises no one can keep;
Though I still think it queer
That the end is now here,
I’ll rest now, before I sleep.

War Is Over If You Want It

Our species now has enough clues:
Survival’s a war we will lose;
Since you’ve gotten the news,
It might alter your views,
But fight on, if that’s what you choose.

Not Just a River in Egypt

A luxury trip down denial
Is less of a mental trial
Than to be in a bind
And end up resigned
With no requisite sociable smile.

Nevertheless, when you compile
All doom’s factors into one file,
You see choice is confined
To shit or go blind,
And nothing in life seems worthwhile.

Near Term Extinction and Kubler-Ross

1 Denial
Pressure will build up within,
Till deniers, to their chagrin,
Learn when everything shatters
That nothing much matters
So fast it makes their heads spin.

2 Anger
Abruptness in learning the deal
Affects anger at loss people feel;
Minds more blown apart
Are more ready to start
An orgy of horror surreal.

3 Bargaining
Bargaining’s sort of a plea
For some kind of get out of jail free,
But with doom more compelling,
There’s no way of telling
How far out the offers might be.

4 Depression
When there’s less time to digest
How seriously everything’s messed,
We’ll see introduction
Of more self-destruction
And what not from being depressed.

5 Acceptance
Support will likely be small
When we smash into the wall;
Doom is complex,
And folks will be wrecks,
With no time to process at all.

So what’s new about this disaster?
It’s simple; there’s not much to master:
It’s our basic foundation
With amplification,
Evolving faster and faster.

You Say You Want A Revolution

Hierarchy and doom are distinct:
They’re different, even when linked;
While you’re welcome to bitch
About changing your niche,
It won’t stop us from going extinct.
