aren't you happy to see the world go to smash?
your placards and street-corner crankery
have been justified
your easy call for apocalypse
and destruction of all evil earthly order
has been answered in full flush of manic self-mysticism
but oh what a handful you will be
when the humble many climb out
of their shelters and begin to rebuild in the ashes
of what has gone before and you like petulant Jonah
will be pissed at the divine mercy that has spared us
yet again and upset your smug denouements
happy to see whose world go to smash?
