The End Of The World
(written on December 21, 2012)
They say the world will end today –
It’s not a day too soon,
My problems just won’t go away,
The market’s in a swoon –
I just ran out of orange juice,
My dogs are out of food,
My bowels feel a little loose,
I’m in a filthy mood.
The garden’s overgrown with weeds,
The sky is dull and grey,
I have too many wants and needs –
I hope the world will end today!
But stop! I saw that woman smile,
Perhaps she smiled at me –
The end of world can wait a while,
A year or two – or three –
She smiled again, and blew a kiss,
And now I see the sun –
There never was a day like this,
Let’s pray the world will carry on!
