Forests to Deserts

The story about humankind
Features habitats which have declined:
We keep ourselves fed
Clearing forests ahead
And leaving just deserts behind.

One reason to not put off fun
Till a future when work is all done:
It will mess with your mind
As soon as you find
We’re not going to be having one.

Not Being There Yet

We feel the events we foresee
To only a tiny degree;
Beyond hard to believe,
We can’t even conceive
Of how bad it’s going to be.

John Connor

The life that you know is now passed—
Big changes are coming on fast;
It’s just as Mom ranted:
Stuff you take for granted,
It’s’s not gonna last.

We’re all dead. Give it up. Say goodbye.
Don’t even bother to try.
It’s all over, my friend.
This is the end.
It’s too late. We’re all going to die.

Why Won’t Anybody Listen?

Talk softly, like normal, or shout,
Most won’t get what you’re talking about
When you tell them we’re through;
Plus, whatever you do,
It won’t change how things will turn out.

It’s Gonna Get Ugly

We’re not going to bow out with grace;
Instead, the last humans will face
The most depraved, base,
Brutal, horrible place
In the history of the human race.

“A lot of lives could be saved if people had a few minutes.”
“On short notice, an alert to a big city would do more harm than good.
All you'd produce is panic.”
—Fail-Safe (1964)

There’s not any fix-it mechanic
Who can stop doom’s disaster titanic;
If dots being connected
Comes too “unexpected,”
All you'd produce is panic.

Fire and Ice

Predictions can be imprecise:
Global warming, nuclear device,
Plus a very long list,
But you get the gist;
“It’s over,” would also suffice.
