Per the Mayan Calendar the world was to end on the twenty-oneth of December!
I called my preacher who knows about celestial things and he couldn't remember,
Receiving any such revelation from his Boss Up There about any pending disaster!
I breathed an unfeigned sigh of relief since I have great confidence in my pastor!
Well, the twenty-oneth of December came and went with no change that I perceived!
The only amazing thing to me on that day was how the population can be deceived!
The Good Book espouses over and over that "We knoweth not the time nor day!"
I reckon all we can do is behave ourselves 'til that day or there'll be 'ell to pay!
