The Indifference of Overshoot

By studying nature we learn 

Of a species’ normal concern;

Though unbearably sad,

It’s not ‘cause we’re bad,

But simply that now it’s our turn.

Rational thought wasn’t wrong—

The reptilian brain was too strong;

We just couldn’t solve 

How to better evolve,  

And that’s why we’re saying “so long.”

Electric Vehicles

Cars of electric design 

Make vehicles seem more benign:

Fuel burns far away,

So people can say,

“We’re sure things will work out just fine.”

Human Nature

Burning carbon, we knew, meant good-bye,

But pleasure can cause folks to lie;

We chose to deny

And turned a blind eye,

So that’s why we’re all going to die.
