California will slip into the ocean
while domesticated cats grow wings
and attack all the birds until there
are no more and the sky turns red

and yellow and sometimes blue
but mostly red and beer cans rain
which you think might be cool
but they hurt like hell and human

error will be to blame but no one
can point the finger at their friends
neighbors or enemies for that matter
because their fingers bleed.

Thus all will be good in the universe
and all will be right with the Lord.
