Fossil Fuels and Poetry??

"Now I used to think
That I was cool
Running around
On fossil fuel,
Until I saw
What I was doing
Was driving down
The road to ruin."

THIS is the road to ruin?! It takes a special kind of mind to see ruin in the midst of plenty, comfort, and progress that outshines anything in history. The "ruin" is hypothetical, distant, and controversial.

The ruin is also echoic of dozens of similar apocalypses that were to have wrecked civilization in past decades. I guess some people just enjoy the prospect of disaster.
