no petrol


oh babylon
wasted city from the pages of a lit book
dusted by the fallout of time

how fast would our civilization crumble
if one day we awoke and there was no fuel
to run our silly little cars about
or heat our mcmansions

or what if the earth simply imploded because
of the lack of density
caused by the fuel we had sucked
from the center of the earth

or what if that massive comet hits us head on
and we warble out of orbit and fry
into a black hole

or what if the godhead
can only manifest itself
if all perishes

the great trash compacter
in the sky
all
nothing at all
the one

what a lame game

only get out what you put into it
