The Apocalypse

When is the world meant to end again?

I keep forgetting and don’t want to miss it

I am looking forward to the clouds of fire,

The meteor hail and mile high waves

Of course it only looks good from a distance

And there is bound to be a big fuss

One wonders why we have to have an apocalypse at all this year

The previous ones were all a disappointment

I suppose the doomsday enthusiasts need something to look forward to

A reason to build their fallout shelters and stockpile provisions

They will be crazy until the day it happens

Still the Mayans in their temples

Believed they saw it coming

When they mapped the future

The event guide for the past five thousand years

Maybe they just ran out of things to do

And called it a day
