Old Vehicle in a Gravel Driveway

The events will not pause in arriving,
Even if the Earth itself stops spinning,
Which likely it won’t, not any time soon.

People will continue to find themselves
Somewhat surprised at what’s happened, somewhat
Prone to tell each other, I told you so.

The balance of lives ending quietly
Or violently will go on shifting,
Back and forth. At each moment, survivors

Somewhere will say to other survivors
Of that moment statements to the effect
That, It can’t go on like this! Then it will.
