Paradoxical and True


Third World War
won't be an act of terrorism
it will happen by accident
with no one to record

the best feature scoop of the century
unreported, without an audience
havoc among the planets,
solar system with indigestion

very unfair to Mars and Venus
the moon, might just go down
and not come up with the tides,
with no one to record

Oh dear me the stock exchange
will close and those sanctuaries
of religion will tell you
I told you so, if there are any to listen

this years fashion show, delayed
all those secret places for VIP's
uninhabited by their rightful owners
Gosh, how could life be so unfair

no more worries about pollution,
the haves and have nots all be equal
strange it took an atomic Third World War
to bring equality and democracy

what a superior, race of Super Men
we ovecame all other species
making them extinct without
any threats, to an unknown future

better luck next time

To war and arms I fly.
