The world will wither under the weight of dust
and the lies of the mass media.
First the oil will run out, and then the trust
descending into mass hysteria.
And all is in the hands of some elected fate
choosing between a burials or cremations;
whichever offers the best exchange rate
must be the best option for Earth's divided nations.
Throw your dollars, your euros and your pounds into a baseball cap
and melt them down for what they are worth.
Smother yourself into their smouldering sap
and save your skin before you save the Earth.
