Weather changeDrastic,Think Permian-Triassic–Jurassic,21st century global shutdown:Mother of all mass extinctions.
It could beMeteor strike,Fireball of lightA super bolide,End of life:Death viableThrough extraterrestrial means.
But theseCelestial bodiesTerrestrial bodiesMillions of bodiesLayering the earth,Are cycles in a sphere:Bones, Peat,Graphite, Coal,Diamonds,Flesh, blood,Bones.
These showDeath viableThrough terrestrial machines:NagasakiHiroshimaFukushimaChernobyl.
National Security DefenderAgainst Aggressor, Transgressor,Ignore the professor

Pass the bill, bring this idea to lifeThrough forceful will,A horrifically real productionOf an Armageddon film:

Nuclear firestormNuclear darknessNuclear winterNuclear springStinging heatBurning coldIn the northern winds-
Never mind that:Did you win?
Local pandemic spreading:Global warmingGlobal floodingGlobal coolingAnd green-less glaciersDarkest planet in the system,Smoky skiesAnd eerie silence
How many Titanics carrying souls must sink before their eyesBefore they decide the icebergIs bigger than they think?
I wouldn’t want to be a survivorAfter they toss around whimsLike little hand grenadesThat could wipe out geographies and histories
Between the existence of terrestrial machinesVersus the remote possibility of extraterrestrial means
wouldn't want to bet onHow it all ends.
All in all,Nuclear son,See you by the radiant sunBefore The OneWhen all is doneWhen all is gone.-----------October Poetry: in the style of April Poetry (U.S. National Poetry Month),U.K’s poetry month is October.
