The Lyrics

I've used this one before. Prophets are always foretelling the end of the world. Some day it could happen.
Asteroids pass through Earth's orbit
Mystery lights in the sky
Are these signs of the end of the world?
Our planet is about to die

Surgical masks on our faces
Locusts in African skies
Two more signs of the end of the world
We're facing imminent demise

I read selected headlines on the Drudge site
Everything, it seems is getting worse
Draw lines in the sand, could it all have been planned?
Just make room for me in the hearse

Why is Australia burning?
Where will the kangaroos go?
Climate change means the end of the world
The Arctic has run out of snow

Honey bees facing extinction
Wall Street in permanent slump
What better time for the end of the world?
We'll blame it all on Donald Trump

When I looked at my first draft, I noticed I had used "obit" instead of "orbit". That old subconscious is acting up again.
