Too Alienated from Nature?

The conclusion that some people draw  
Is we’ve drifted from natural law;
But doom cognoscenti
See nature aplenty,
Red in both tooth and in claw.

Those Who Don’t Learn History

Those who don’t study about
How Nazis develop their clout
Are now doomed to repeat—
With a front row seat—
What they didn’t already find out.

Fuckity Fuck

Fuckity fuckity fuck— 
Fuckity fuckity fuck;
Fuckity fuck,
Fuckity fuck:
Fuckity fuckity fuck!

Sgt. Pepper

It was fifty years ago today
Sgt. Pepper taught the band to play;
And though I am biased,
I think that’s the highest
We got till we all went away.

Maladapted

We evolved for small tribes, which seemed good
Until overshoot changed our hood;
Since then we’ve resorted
To make-dos contorted,
And managed the best that we could.

Reefer Madness

We’re totally fucked, as you see,  
And there’s no way that we can break free;
I’m not someone who plugs     
That the answer is drugs, 
But they seem to be working for me.

Jester

Laugh when folks claim doom’s a hoax,
Seek distraction from favorite strokes,
Try to pretend
That this isn’t the end—
At some point, you run out of jokes.
