    Future Doubt

    Sprawl and crawl, please help me yawl’
    the earth is straight degrading
    doom , gloom, there’s no more room
    and the ozone layer is fading
    global warming, new diseases forming
    population, out of control
    gangsters hoarding oil, while river water’s spoil
    Dear Lord, bless our souls
    gas prices soaring, preachers sermons boring
    and Eron’s off in the Bush’s
    Martha Stewart lying, while K-Mart’s dying
    Las Vegas taking no more pushes
    mad cow disease, designer herpes
    on the brink of nuclear explosion
    whole planet shrinking, septic tanks stinking
    beeches got a cousin named erosion
    hurricanes more severe, increasing each year
    tornadoes leaving mass devastation
    plant life we’re losing, while concrete we’re choosing
    bringing on deforestation
    hell, we don’t need no trees, we don’t need no breeze
    living on carbon emissions
    got so many cars, we’re leaving earth for mars
    check MapQuest for road conditions
    natural environment, headed for retirement
    been given an early out
    social security, a forgotten obscurity
    future, seriously in doubt
    OUR FUTURE’S SERIOUSLY IN DOUBT!!!

    This is a modern day Ball of Confusion. You do know how to turn a phrase poet.
