A preacher tried to end the world
Twice in this year of 2011,
But as he did before, he failed,
And so we missed his train to Heaven.
Meanwhile, as over debt we fret,
Ignoring rising seas and storms,
Icecaps melting, drought and flood,
Foretelling famine, want and wars,
Does ending need an Act of God,
Or might we do the deed ourselves--
And per the Maya in 2012?
