The Mayan Calendar, for all to see
the end of the World, That's when it will be,
Some people say, that God doesn't know
just where He should place His seat for the show,

Earthquakes and storms 
every day now it seems,
disasters, disasters
to the doomsayer's gleams,

I dis-remember was it last year
a doomsayer down south,
filled his pockets with money 
by running his mouth,

Y2k another prediction
where doom it was said,
Yet computers still functioned
and the World was not dead,

I won't make predictions
for the death of us all,
Might be the best that could happen
is if Wall Street did fall,

What will happen to man
will be seen in the end,
we've done it all to ourselves
that, we cannot defend,

God, gave us this Earth
to do with as we will,
all the damage we've done
and are doing it still,

the most intelligent mind,
with a heart and a soul
yet, we just cannot find,

And yet, it was written
on tablets of stone,
just how Man should live
It's always been known,

Intelligent minds
driven by lust and by greed,
cannot fathom, the simplest of things
one thing that we need,

To love one another
without malice or hate,
or when the end it does come
there will be no debate.

Dedicated to Man's inhumanity to Man !

    This date is another prediction of man. It says in the bible no man shall know when this day shall come.But I agree,when are the people of the world going to lose the hate?I'm afraid thats what will bring our destruction.Very Nice write also.Keep the words flowing.
