the end of the world

the closer it gets to
the year 2012 boss
the goofier some
of us in the church
pew underworld act
and the more folks
talk about the end
of the world

chicken little has
been recruiting fresh
troops marching
around the animal
kingdom carrying signs
far more ominous
than his original
campaign slogan –
the sky is falling –

most of the signs
now say boss –
the end is near –
time is running out –
eternity looms ahead –
the end of the age
is upon us –
the world is shutting
down – judgment day
is coming

it has all been a bit
scary and unnerving
for most of us boss

the only one that looked
somewhat out of place
was ernie the earthworm

ernie had been toting
his own sign for a
while but soon got
jumbled into the
larger crowd – however
his sign didn t carry
quite the same impact
as the others did – his
sign read simply –
life is unfair
