Swan Song

 
(for Joss)
 
World one step from `nuclear annihilation,′ UN chief warns
News Item
 

Come come
let us celebrate?
 
They wanted Armageddon
they will keep their date
 
It’s the Acme of Dystopia
so they just can’t wait
 
They only sit and wonder
why is it come so late?
 
It’s only come-back Karma
just pedestrian fate
 
They wished to be Number One
they wanted to be great
 
So must press that button for
the Glory of the State
 
Have done with Evolution
time to clear the slate
 
They’re in the driver’s seat
we were but the freight
 
Their minds were ever made up
they will not vacillate
 
They do what they always have
dread Barbs at the Gate
 
Have no yen for peace nor quiet
simply have to dominate
 
None left to remonstrate
likewise none to moderate
 
So this may be the Only Way
Our souls we might placate?
 
That though it spell The End of Love
’tis also the End of Hate
