The Day the Earth Stopped

The last time I visited, dude,
I said, “Change that bad attitude!”
Did you listen? Um…no—
You stayed status quo,
And now you’re all totally screwed.

The Primacy of Biology

10 seconds, starting at 22:32 at
“…every civilization, including this one, is characterized by endemic racism, endemic misogyny, and endemic monetary disparity resulting in poverty….”

Great noble ideas they’d conceive,
But it turned out that they were naïve:
Their nature made sure
They were not so darn pure—
There were things they could never achieve.

The End of Suffering

For now, each day’s worse, but ahead,
We’re going to feel better instead:
Once we’ve swirled down the drain,
We’ll be feeling no pain,
‘Cause everyone’s going to be dead.

If I Had Known

When I lived in a womb as a sprout,
I knew not what life was about;
If I’d known as a fetus
What’s out there to greet us,
I wouldn’t have ever come out.
