Part of Nature

Animals make their debut
As part of nature’s milieu,
And a terminal route
Via overshoot—
That’s part of nature too.

Does our species deserve to elapse
For the way we’ve behaved? Perhaps;
But we’re hard at it still
So it’s certain we will
By the time we’re all done with collapse.

Doomer’s Choice

In his epic essay at NBL, Daniel says: "NTE ends in only one of three ways for everyone: predation, starvation or suicide."

When NTE hits planetwide,
We can run, but with nowhere to hide,
It will turn out that we
Must choose one of three:
Predation, starvation or suicide.

As I look at my life in review,
Strong forces must make us make do:
The evidence is clear
From the fact I’m still here
After all of the shit I’ve been through.

The Buddha says: “Life is Suffering.”


At first, our extinction motif
Is us, fighting disbelief;
But the more we watch strife
And the downside of life,
The more we view death as relief.

Geezers Do Doom

Doom is an old people’s game,
And dealing with death is the aim;
It won’t mess with your head
When you’re practically dead
‘Cause the issues are mostly the same.


If I get a disease they can’t cure,
I’m gonna do hospice for sure;
The same goes for doom:
I’ve had enough gloom
In my life—I won’t try to endure.

It’s All Good

Every day, when I roll out of bed,
They’ve found something new we should dread;
It would mess with my head
But it’s O.K. instead
‘Cause I know that we’re already dead.

Gathering Speed

NTE is gathering speed,
So extinction is guaranteed,
But we will succeed
To be finally freed
From the misery of our breed.

Hope Springs Eternal

I’m into this doomer thing deep,
But there still are some hopes that I keep:
Like, before we all fry,
I hope that I’ll die
Quietly while I’m asleep.

Molecules Bounce Around As They Must

On Determinism and Blame

Molecules bounce without aim,
Or socialized human head game;
Always some prior cause
Within nature’s laws
Means no one has ultimate blame.

Get Over It

The universe doesn’t take actions
Because of your special attractions:
Instead, I’ve a hunch
It thinks you’re a bunch
Of chemical reactions.

Free Will

We’re like some illogical bozo,
Not a reasoning virtuoso:
Since every event
Is of causal descent,
Nothing arises de novo.


Fate’s something we can’t wish away:
Atoms bounce as they must and don’t stray;
We protest or accept
While we’re getting prepped,
But we don’t get to have any say.

Post-Acceptance Rethinking

Resources we need keep on shrinking,
So hope for improvement is sinking,
Forcing all that we knew
To a new point of view
Based on post-acceptance rethinking.

Join the Army!

I want to be doing doom right,
So I’ll fight with all of my might;
I will fight to the death
With my very last breath
When I figure out whom I should fight.

No one can be in control
When they’re only a part of the whole:
Many forces conflict,
But together predict
You’re fucked, whatever your goal.

He Loved Big Brother

Sitting here watching TV,
It’s looking like TPTB
Are keeping things stable
As long as they’re able,
Which is pretty much OK with me.
