Louis XV

(king of France)
famously said
Après moi le déluge.

Now, you don't need
the contacts and networks
or royal insight of a king
or a minister of state,
nor do you need to be
a visionary philosopher :

any thoughtful person
near to or at the bottom
of the social heap

(though you may scoff
at my assumption)

can recognise that
Après nous le catastrophe.
