Yes, the End Time Is Near

by Gary Hardaway

It is sad and tragic
to be wiped out by cataclysm:

lava, ash, tsunami,
pyroclastic flow,  

trembling and shaking ground,
wailing winds and inescapable

waves of water.
We'll just choke on all our shit

or drop dead breathing
our own exhaust

for we are a small and  
numerously stupid people.
