Happy Doomer New Year 2014

In past years, we, as ever, perverse,
Joked “If we’re still here” as some curse,
But now it appears
That we’ll be here for years,
An outcome that’s probably worse.

Happy New Year!   :D

Point and Laugh

When faced with some quixotic gaffe
From deniers too bonehead by half,
One way to not let
It get you upset
Is to point and laugh, just point and laugh.

Merry Doomer Christmas

Sharing our year-end review
Always served to remind us anew
That we could get hit
With this end of world bit
So it might be the last time we do.

Next year, if the fates permit,
We’ll be gone, save for our obit;
And, unlike hitherto,
We won’t have to go through
Another year more of this shit.

Merry Christmas!  :D

In The News Lately

Laws Are for The Little People

Once doom—and the end—come on strong,
The masses see more what was wrong
With the system, their niche,
How they were its bitch,
And how bad they got fucked all along.

Duck Dynasty

With scapegoats in public maligned
By hate, we historically find
That words and abstraction
Can soon become action
And murder’s not too far behind.

Scapegoating Index

Increased hardships for surviving
Means more intertribal striving
And scapegoating hate
Which might help adumbrate
Just how quickly doom is arriving.

Beatles Medley

Fixing a Hole

Doom will no longer delay,
So I'm taking the time while I may
For whatever life brings
And a number of things
That weren't important yesterday.

The Fool On The Hill

The doomer’s considered a clown,
A silly one, wearing a frown;
But he knows we’ll be dead,
And the eyes in his head
Can see our world going down.

(Watching the Wheels)

It was fun at first, then I said no
To an act in some go-nowhere show,
‘Cause one day, pretty quick,
I got dizzy and sick,
And I just had to let it go.

Eleanor Rigby

Eleanor lived in a dream:
Used denial to boost self-esteem;
Wrestling doom set her free
To be able to see
Who she was, not what she might seem.

The Green Man

After we nourish the ground,
Other species of life will rebound,
And cheering them on,
Long after we’re gone,
The Green Man will still be around.

How Extinction Is Changing Our Worldview

Future References

Once you no longer sit on the fence,
Allusions to future events
Begin to look moot,
No longer compute,
And start making less and less sense.

AGW and Meltdowns End It

Our various doomer room chatters
Are listing the ways the world shatters,
But since we can’t beat
The nukes and the heat,
None of that other stuff matters.

Guilty Secret

I read some new bummer’s occurred,
And I should have my empathy stirred;
Yet sometimes I laugh,
Which I know is a gaffe,
But the whole thing’s so fucking absurd.

Gaia, Suffering, and Human Extinction

Extinction might be Gaia’s cure
From humans and all their manure,
But, in any case,
When we vacate this space,
Our suffering will end for sure.

You Maniacs! You Blew It Up!

Looks like we’re too late to ban it,
‘Cause, all the way down to the granite,
It’s time to admit it,
We finally did it:
Honey, we blew up the planet.

Hooray for Deniers!

Deniers keep kicking the can,
Helping doomers, as part of fate’s plan:
Though we’re just a few,
When they’re doomers too,
That’s when the shit hits the fan.

The Upside of Extinction

The Upside of Extinction

What turns out unstoppable then
Might occasion some grand Amen,
Because when it’s done,
It means that no one
Will ever suffer again.

H/T: Kathy Cassandra
(Moved here from previous post.)

More Upside of Extinction

Doom overall’s about grief,
But, much like a fart or a queef,
Effects that are mental,
Although incidental,
Will also include some relief.

Better Living Through Chemistry

Extinction won’t leave any heirs
To the suffering humankind shares;
Plop plop, fizz fizz,
What relief it is!
Released from all of our cares.

Suicide or Euthenasia?

Extinction we’re causing worldwide
Might be thought of as suicide;
But if ending the pain
Is seen as humane,
Euthenasia’s what’s being applied.

More Negativity


How much of our life we create
Has been a longstanding debate;
But when closely reviewed,
Doom should have us conclude
That we’re not in control of our fate.

We Are Like Snowflakes

As what you alone thought and felt
Because of the cards you were dealt,
Doom’s right path for you
Will be unique too;
And also, we’re soon going to melt.

Think of the Children

If children not born knew they’d grow
In our world so chock-full of woe,
And if option they got
To go through it or not,
They’d probably answer, “Fuck no!”

Attaining Acceptance

I’m working real hard to create
A way to accept our fate;
Pursuing that shit
Prob’ly won’t help a bit,
But it’s something to do while we wait.
