Russian Roulette



Us humans think we're so damn smart And totally in control of things Then a meteorite screams down from outer space We're just puppets on a string We certainly aren't the ones writing the script In a flash we could all disappear And become extinct like the dinosaurs did Forever our greatest fear So make sure you tell your dear little sweetie That you love her a bunch every day Life is like a game of Russian Roulette Could end like a Ibsen play Meteorites, asteroids, or volcanic eruptions Any one could end our P-Soup Happily it won't matter if our bills aren't paid No one left to give a poop! © Jack Ellison

    Great poem. Used it for an poetry anthology for school. lot of truth to it. luckily, we have beautiful science to help protect us. The much bigger threat is eachother. I may not have a god to pray to, but I have faith we will find a way to make it when the time comes.

    Lol, I guess anything from outer space can hit us. We have so much junk up there. But we go when God says we go, Jack. Have no doubt about that. Great write :)

    Now you have me all nervous Jack. Hopefully a friendly UFO will pick me up before the giant Astroid hits. Either way no more bills, horray!

    I've been in contact with some UFO guys and they promised I would be saved along with my sweet li'l cleaning gal with the cute bum! Sorry Rick! LOL
