End of the world poem #1

No one knows when the world will end,

except perhaps some Mayan.

They set the date at 2012, and, my, how time is flyin.

.

But that’s just when, and not till then

will we know the way,

in which the fickle universe

has the final say.

.

An asteroid from outer space

can really thin the herd.

That’s what got the dinosaurs,

at least so I have heard.

.

Nuclear war might kill us all

in one big fiery spasm,

and sweep our race from our top place

right into the chasm.

.

If not by fire then perhaps by cold,

when the glaciers start to move.

From snow and shear ice age fear,

our destruction it may prove.

.

But all the threats which we’d regret

are not that large in size.

a tiny little virus

could lead to our demise.

.

Even if we squeak past all of those,

there’s still one threat to solve,

because there won’t be any people left

when once more we evolve.

the Grit
