Earth surface crumbling, bridges falling,
Global warming, meteorites impending
Floods, hurricanes, earthquakes galore
We will not survive the next World War.

The world has tilted on its axis,
This explains the global warming
We're slanted closer to the sun
This suggests we're "over-done".

Maybe we are now just half-baked
This explains our chaotic thinking
If the world is tilted this explains a lot
Let's all hang on or we'll all slide off.

"Browned Off"

The earth is tilted closer to the sun
I guess we might all feel "browned off",
Maybe some skin tones will get darker
We will look more like each other

In light of us all getting darker
Maybe it's advisable to consider,
What we must deal with on a daily basis
Our morning face in a too bright mirror.

"Ticked Off"

Our daily excursions on the road
Standing in line at the local bank
Waiting for the customer checking out
Get out my way, we want to shout.

Sitting at traffic lights staying red
Can't reach the slot at the ATM
Back up the car and just out of view
A pole in my way, another dent or two.

"Laid Off"

Time for another employee review
Each year we hear that some must go
A pink slip is ready with a final check
Who is about to hit the deck.

A farewell party does not ring true
Keep the early retirement watch
Where's the door, I'd rather keep my job,
I'll settle the score with double scotch.

"Re-Balancing"

Our lives are definitely off kilter
Let's face it the Earth is off its axis
We need to level up and balance even
Lets align ourselves with our Lord's Heaven.

Populations need to move East or West
Or maybe billions to the North or South
If our Earth is off balance then so are we
Lets balance our Earth and start anew.

Very important (urgent, relevant) message and great creative writing. I recently wrote a poem on the same thematic thread - so it seems we're riding parallel thought-waves...

Good itnensity in this work!~

Needed!
