What you can count on

our gas price was1.50 per gallon

on the day bush took the white house

today our gas price is 3.59 per gallon

which only confirms our worst fear;

you can only put so many greedy rats in a cage

before they start biting each other

over less and less cheese.

human existence complete with

pathetic fears and ridiculous dreams

amounts to nothing

without an atmosphere

to breathe.

even the puny nuclear pop-guns

we are so proud of

are just bug guts

against the windshield of geologic time.

maybe we will get smarter

as we drive along;

evolve beyond our nature.

most likely

blue green algae will have to

start all over again.
