What we do now?

Okay you tell me
What we do now?
We have gas generators and jugs and jugs of water
Too much dried food and dried milk (from a cow?)

There are flashlights
Everywhere I look
Manual can openers
And piles of survival books

I’ve put away batteries
Until I am rather ill
When next I need them
Who will find them? I know I never will

And extra cash?
We were told to keep some on hand
Well if I had some
Wouldn’t it be grand

Then now I could pay
The electric and water charge
In person – and on foot
With bills much too large

Ah—well—at last it is over
2000 came in like a lamb
no dire predictions came true
so the good guys got the last laugh, Sam
