The Short Order Cook

In short order the beautiful cloud
bloomed here and there and every-
where and nuclear waste wasted
the earth and all our efforts at
environmentalism blew away that
day just before we died, then we
and millions of others blew, too,
including the animals who were so
smart to avoid typhoons, tsunamis,
tornadoes, earthquakes, volcanic
eruptions, but had no idea what to
do with nuclear explosions or the
rain that seared their skin and
melted their lungs and burned
their paws away that tragic day.
