Nothing is Exploding

Just when you're about to sell
all the fine art in the house
to buy canned food and guns,
just when you think North Korea
launched a nuclear warhead headed
straight for your back porch wind-chime,
just when you think God's gonna
reach his giant hands out of the sky,
grab hold of the planet and smoosh it,

that's when you notice a stupid dove
gently perched on a tree branch,
that's when you stroll down the street
to collect the usual junk mail,
that's when you look around, and see
with such clear eyes
that nothing is exploding.
