I was told today was the last day on earth.

I quickly gathered up anything I had of worth.

I figured if I had to go, I’d take all my best things.

I grabbed my piggy bank and our wedding rings.

I never really thought this day would actually come.

I always felt if it did, it was probably best kept mum.

I knew everyone would be upset and start to panic.

I thought I’d take it in stride, I mean why go manic?

I know you might not be happy, maybe even cry.

I would take you around so you could say goodbye.

I guess your family and friends would be upset too.

I for one would not be jumping for joy, would you?

I wish I had had everything packed and ready to go.

I sure hope the weather is good, definitely no snow.

I think I’d not worry about the house, the dog or cat.

I decided for laughs I’d leave down the welcome mat.

I figured this whole end of the world theory would eventually burst.

I assume that would happen once we all realized it’s April 1st!
