According to astronomers

Someday our sun will blow,

Become a supernova,

A celestial fireworks show.

The Earth will be enveloped

In a cloud of burning gases.

No one will have a chance

To save their sorry asses!

Think of all that’s lost

In this catastrophe:

Works of human genius,

Reduced to space debris.

Mozart’s compositions,

The paintings of Seurat,

The plays and verse of Shakespeare

Will have had their last hurrah.

Not more Elvis, no more Bing,

No Frank, no Sarah Vaughn,

No Bergman/Bogart movies,

Even Oprah will be gone!

Let’s hope there’s some dimension

Where this greatness goes.

Where it will last forever,

And there too our sorry souls!
