The End of Rule of Law

I liked the time when we had laws

Which folks mostly followed because

Nature, they say,

Works one basic way:

Red both in teeth and in claws.

Envy’s a sin, it’s been said,

It really can mess with your head,

And we can foresee

How’s life’s going to be:

The living will envy the dead.

Masque of the Red Death

The elites were having a ball,

When a masked figure came in the hall;

The dying Prince yelled,

“…And the Red Death held

Illimitable dominion over all.”

Humans, Uniquely

Species come, and they then disappear,

And some leave their mark on our sphere;

But studies have shown 

That humans alone

Wreck the whole fucking place while they’re here.

Might Makes Right

The wise ape arose and it saw

Nature red, both in tooth and in claw;

Trials to change failed because

It was what it was,

With a mind ruled by reptile brain law.

Planet of the Humans

They claim that some cherries were plucked
Or it’s not the best way to instruct,
Which serves to distract
From one troublesome fact:
The fact that we’re fatally fucked.

We’re All in This Together

Hey humans, please heed the call!
Let’s go at it, balls to the wall!
Despite doom, we are One, 
And we’ll get the job done
In the war of all against all.

The “green” thing was only a hoax
For planting false hopes into folks;
There is no solution 
Because evolution,
And soon every one of us croaks.

Ode on Doom

More “beauty is truth” and less woe
Would’ve been nice, starting long, long ago;
Much of life always sucked,
Now we’re totally fucked—
And that is all ye need to know.

Paging George Orwell, George Orwell, White Courtesy Telephone Please

It was, like, our usual scene:
Just doing our normal routine;
It was April—and cold,
We were all well controlled, 
And the clocks were striking thirteen.

Although we might often have druthers,
We should act like good sisters and brothers:
All animals are equal,
But then comes the sequel: 
Some are more equal than others.   

Two legs are bad, four legs good,
That’s how to think like you should;
Surprise! Two legs bad
Was only a fad—
Two legs good! You misunderstood.

Freedom is slavery—true,
And ignorance, strength (which you knew);
Of course, war is peace,
And as rations decrease, 
Big Brother is watching you.

The creatures looked from their niche,
Between man and pig they would switch;
They were dead meat because 
Already it was 
Impossible to say which was which.

Chemical Reactions

In my brain, where thoughts all begin,
Electrical impulses spin;
They jump to and fro
But mostly, I know, 
The end of the world’s seeping in. 

This Is It

This is our final descent,
The outcome is baked in cement;  
The ending’s projected:
Faster than expected—
Our time here done got up and went.

Wallowing in Doomer Limbo

This transition, which makes us perplexed,
Uncertain, adrift, lost, and vexed,
Is surreal and mad,  
But not all that bad
Compared to what’s coming up next.

Dealing with Doom

As more and more shit hits the fan,
We each form our own unique plan:
I just give up hope, 
Smoke plenty of dope, 
And get as fucked up as I can.
