NaPoWriMo 2019 Day 24 + Poems in April Day 24: The Yellowstone Supervolcano

The Yellowstone Supervolcano
Ain't no pie in the sky
It's a lake of lava in the ground
Bubbling all around

And if it decides to erupt
It's tough luck, Buttercup
Because we can all bend over
And kiss our ass goodbye

The Yellowstone Supervolcano
Will take out the U.S. and Canada too
If it decides to erupt
We'll all be in the stew

The Yellowstone Supervolcano
Makes a nuke look like a popper
There ain't a big enough stopper
To contain it if it blows

The Yellowstone Supervolcano
Will cook you where you stand
Whether on sea or land
And the ash will down every plane

I make jokes about things
That fill me with fear
The Yellowstone Supervolcano
Keeps me jesting year after year


Not really my best effort, but, whatever.
The Poems in April prompt was to write about a natural phenomenon that amazes you. I decided that by "amazes" they meant "terrifies," so I wrote about the Yellowstone Supervolcano. 


  1. Not something I have ever heard of. Between you and Dr Google I am expecting an uneasy sleep - particularly given the reports the eruption is overdue.

    1. I learned of its existence around 12 years ago and have not been happy about it. As I said, I joke about things that I find bothersome, so I joke about the Yellowstone Supervolcano.
