Back to the Thirties

If not learning the past’s what you do,
You’ll repeat what folks had to go through;
But with history’s view,
It’s regrettably true:
You’re still doomed to repeat it now too.

Some folks smoke dope or get juiced
Because we will soon have vamoosed;
But I’m glad as hell
That the war’s going well,
And chocolate rations won’t be reduced.

A Brief Introduction to AGW

The trouble with increasing heat
Is it’s making us all obsolete;
Our food, plants and meat,
Won’t grow—they’ll deplete,
And we’ll die when there’s nothing to eat.

Captain’s Log, Ecclesiastes 1:2

Here lies the species humanity:
Did they die from some kind of insanity?
All their ability
Yielded futility—
Vanity, all is just vanity.

Everyone’s Cranky Lately

Taking sides and more quick to condemn,
Feeling grouchy and starting mayhem:
As “others” bring forces
To take “our” resources,
More and more of “us” turn into “them.”
