Why Bother

I just read a study by Schroder and Smith,
That scared me completely I must surely admit,
It said that in about eight billion years there about,
The Sun will become a giant red star and blow out,
I was so scared hearing the bad news it changes all,
The earth destroyed and gone makes my skin crawl,
On the other hand, I see no reason at this difficult hour,
To do the dishes, vacuum or to take another shower,
