Doom

As we arrange deck chairs on Titanic,
consider Hindenburg seat arrangement,
ponder everlasting Angkor mythic,
peel a grape by Vesuvius dormant,

or beach comb by sleeping Krakatoa,
write immortal poetry in Black Plague,
french kiss in pandemic influenza,
have a pharaoh’s pride and Moses renege,

admire lampshade’s texture in holocaust,
sing in rain over Noah’s erection,
whistle at a Great Depression job lost,
and feast on a famine’s mirage portion,

let us feel real good and recycle
as we devour into future fossil.
