THE WHEELS ARE COMING OFF

The economy’s in a mess.
It indicates decline.
Its presence is worldwide,
A beast ugly and malign.

Not a cyclical thing,
It’s not occurred before,
A piling up of factors
Presaging more and more.

There’s disaster coming.
I feel it in my bones.
A catastrophe unprecedented,
I hear warning siren drones.

Depression wide and deep,
Then never ending war,
Death and destruction,
Despair at every door.

Democracy will disappear,
And decency and good will.
Thank God I won’t be here
To be fed the bitter pill
