Mayan-Mystery Reveal

Mayan mystery shall be revealed
In just a little while.
Confused minds shall be eased,
Though, now, confusion piles.

Some believe the world will end,
But others think not.
Many believe a 'phase shift'
Will be the 'twist' of plot.

Just around the corner,
About two weeks away—
December twenty first—
Looms the D-Day.

The world is filled with angst—
Anxiety at large.
Uncertainty. Anticipation!
The atmosphere is charged.

The magnitude of preparation,
Driven by pure fear:
Food, water, ammunition
As that day grows near.

'End of the world' parties
Are strategically planned
As people ‘round the globe,
Join the frenzy band.

'Tis a haunting reminder
Of a parallel day—
The hype and commotion
Of Y2k.

Just another distraction?
Or true cause for alarm?
Hopefully on that day,
Life will be the norm.

    Salley, this is a wonderful poem.
    A new era in the Mayan calendar.
    Can't we all feel it? That little thing that makes us restless
    That intense longing for peace and kindness
    Something is in the egg but is expanding so fast
    that it will hatch very soon.
    I am very positive for the futuer of this world
    Soon there will be no more place for warmongers (Report) Reply

    With all due respect for Maia tradition but without any respect by alarmists on duty I prefer to believe that we will pass by more this catastrophic interpretation. Happy New Year for all world! ! ! (Report) Reply

    Yes it is insane what people are doing on what is just going to be another day of the year, its funny that a people that could predict the end of the world could not predict the end of their society or the Spaniards. Doomsdays a bust until the next. (Report) Reply

    There have been so many end-of-the-world days that I don't know how we are still here - but here we certainly still are, so expect that we will remain so through December 21 - good excuse for a party though! Great poem Walterrean, enjoyed very much. Novel and clever. (Report) Reply

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
