My Friend, Fear The End!

The end is coming. Start the drumming. Tell all far and near. The Evil Tootoo Lord is here. His fangs will plunge into Earth and nothing will be left of worth. Whoops, I lie. The Evil Tootoo Lord is too shy.

Weren't those years great?
Yeah, no one can relate.
That decade was fun.
It was peace for everyone.

Bomb shelters sold here.
Get one before death is near.
You'll need it today.
Come on, don't delay.

Those decades were grand.
Fun across the land.
I wish I lived then.
I'd have a nice den.

Society will collapse.
The Great Depression may relapse.
You better take your money and run.
With the banks be done.

Such decades were quaint.
They were like colorful paint.
Just so cheery and bright.
Could walk in the dead of night.

The Russians are coming.
Sound the drumming.
They'll be here soon.
Spies around every sand dune.

Such decades were a blast.
I wish they could last.
They'd be great to this day.
Why can't I hit replay?

Plague runs across the Earth.
A new virus has given birth.
Lock your windows and doors.
Stick close to the floors.

Wish we could go back.
There it never did lack.
We were oh so wise.
There was no crazy cries.

Y2K is almost here.
Everyone run in fear.
There will be panic in the streets.
Better stalk up on eats.

Wasn't that fun? We went on a reminiscing run. Ours was as original as can be. No one thinks about the fear that hung from the decade tree. Nope, all kittens and rainbows they recall. Humans do have selective memory after all. Fear mongering is every which way today as it was years before on display. Do you wish you had a certain decade's green grass? I'll stay right here with my little rhyming ass.

Experience spring, have a fling.

  2. Go back to the days when we had to get up, cross the room, and twist the knob on the television set? No thanks.
    The grass is greenest now because now is where we are.

  3. On the days of reminiscing
    The blarney stone we were not kissing
    I never feared in days of yore
    When everyone was really poor
    Now this age brings us money galore
    To buy the chemicals from the store

  7. It's very easy to look at the past through rose-tinted lenses and think that previous eras were so much better. But I think it's a constant that life sucks, wherever and whenever you are.

  11. Remember the fear that computers would collapse at the stroke of midnight on 1/1/2000? People were actually stocking the basements with food and water.

  12. I like living in the now, thank you very much. I had a neighbor call me once and ask if I had my basement stocked with food because she knew the end of times were just on the horizon. "We gotta look out for each other on this street! If you don't have enough, I have a year's supply or more stocked in mine and we'd be happy to share." If the end is near, I think I'd rather die than share in her kale chips and gluten-free crackers.

  13. Ah yes, I recall those days
    When we expected a world ablaze
    With buildings crumbling down
    And nuclear horror all around.

    At school we'd hear the siren sound
    and under our desks we'd hit the ground.
    With little arms we covered our heads,
    But if it had been real we would have been dead.

  20. “And now it begins,” said Ser Arthur Dayne, the Sword of the Morning. He unsheathed Dawn and held it with both hands. The blade was pale as milkglass, alive with light.

    “No,” Ned said with sadness in his voice. “Now it ends.”
