Twelve Years, They Say.

 

Twelve years, they say, until catastrophe;

it may come to you, it may come to me.

Nature, she’s always been one fickle mistress,

and will mess things up without any assistance.

This planet has burned before mankind,

with frozen wastes following on behind.

What fools we humans must have been,

to disregard what before had seen;

to turn our backs on the distant past,

to trick ourselves that it could ever last.

Sure we could have slowed things down,

mankind could have lessened Nature’s frown;

a hundred more years, a thousand maybe,

but sooner or later the world would cease to be

the place we all know, where we all dwell --

a memory before it turns into some kind of hell.
