Say goodbye, because the world
Is coming to an end.
Do not shoot the messenger – 
I’m warning you, my friend.

Gather all ye rosebuds
(Even that which is a sled)
And have a final champagne toast
Or have a beer instead.

Do not fret – it’s destiny.
There’s nothing you can do.
Search on Google all you want 
And you won’t find a clue.

Watch your Showtime On Demand;
Tomorrow is too late.
For Carrie, Saul and Brody – well,
We’ll never know their fate.

You should heed the words I say;
Believe me, I’m not lyin’.
I’m lucky that the calendar
I bought last year was Mayan!

    This is such an adorable poem. Just so witty. Your Citizen Kane reference is awesome. This poem is absolutely incredible. Love it! Love it! Love it! I have a funny post on my facebook page about the Mayan calendar. you may have seen it already. The mayan working on the calendar is offered tequila and replies "sure, if I don't finish this it won't be the end of the world"
