2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 14

For today's prompt, write a doomsday poem. Some of you may remember the world was supposed to end last year (actually twice last year), but that's nothing new. Every few years there seems to be a new "end of world" prediction (anyone remember Y2K?). In fact, this year had a movie made after it in relation to the Mayan calendar (btw, my dad is one of those who actually believes in the 2012 doomsday prediction), and there's a whole industry built around end times preparations. So why not write a poem about it?

Here's my attempt:

"Tax Day Tanka"

They tried to warn me
(over and over) but I
wouldn't listen, and
now, I'll have to suck it up
and pay everything due.

Did somebody say end of the world?

Or what about out of this world? Because writers who are into science fiction and fantasy can get the ultimate Write Science Fiction and Fantasy Collection, which brings together more than $400 worth of SFF-writing products and discounts the bundle by 70%!
