Poem – annihilation

Will it be an asteroid strike

That knocks humanity off its bike

Or will it be a nuclear war

Which flattens us to the floor

A pandemic spreading far and wide

To consign us to the other side

Maybe eruption and volcanic ash

Will cause the human race to crash

Or a tsunami high and fast

Making sure that we don’t last

Rising sea and desert spread

Leaving the population dead.

After all this speculation

About the world’s annihilation

The most likely consideration

Is our exploding population.
