The End of the World Poem by Z.Love


"The Mayans! The Mayans!", We scream with a shout!
The world must be ending when their calendar’s out.

Chicken Little should've taught us this lesson in a story of old,
When you think the end is nearing, just wait and let reality take hold.

First research the facts, then verify them,
Because only a fool would believe on a whim.

So now let’s "get the skinny" from an expert or two,
Only to find that our gullible thinking was not based on a clue.

Archaeoastronomer Aveni says in 2012 the end will not come,
Why? Because the Mayans only kept past time with a hum!

This future concept - while normal to us - was beyond the Mayans to look,
More important to them was the farmer's almanac, found in their Dresden Codex book.

According to Aveni, the Mayans cared little about future predictions,
They were more interested in the ancestors and divine convictions.

So for the "lesson to be learned" so that the truth may be told,
This is just one of that grand ole stories we will share once we're old,

Rather than aimlessly worry about the end coming nigh',
Why not use this opportunity to get right with God?
He is the one referred to as the Lord Most High.
