What Didn't Happen This Week
This week two asteroids avoided Earth,
though narrowly by spacey standards, as
they passed with fraction of our lunar berth,
like cutting through the parking spot moon has.
This week no nuclear explosions boomed
near surface, atmosphere, or ocean floor,
such fusion stayed confined to gas consumed
by sun, fueled biolocomotion's war.
This week no magma-laden holy mount
disgorged its hellfire contents skyward, nor
did budge tectonic plates 'pon which we count.
to float civilization evermore.
As foil to strife man stirs up on repeat,
destruction on galactic scale's complete.
