Fraught With Peril: Too Late For Earth Day

Humans will never leave. We're the new cockroaches, baby!

Your optimism is intoxicating.
It is like a poultice for my spirit wound.

When I poke it, the cockroaches of hope pour out.

I like to celebrate the day after Earth Day.
Dress the kids up in hoodies, push a cart around, scavenge for food,
cough up lungs are a few of the time-honored traditions.
Some of the other traditions are not talked about.

Earth Day is a good time make a new parking lot. Acres of alphalt use up tons of harmful, subterranean hydrocarbons that would otherwise taint to our precious water tablet.

Captcha: full stop

Good point, Captcha! A parking lot would be a useful place to keep the big blue clown car as well.

Even today they ask me with their dead eyes...
Where was I when their huge boots stomped our grass..
Where was I when they poured out by the thousands from their tiny cars...
Where was I when our women and children were forced to wear white makeup!
I can never answer them! Oh why did I have to live!?!

Only Nick Lerman has been to the Easter Islands of the future.

Is the blue car supposed to be some kind of metaphor for the Earth? Because you're fucked in the head if it is. What are we crashing into? ARE YOU A SPACE TERRORIST?

Oh god... Oh no. I think there's only one solution.

Invade... Spaceganistan.

Wise indeed is one who can answer their own questions.
You must win this War on Space, for the military-industrial complex children!
