A Poem About the End of the World in 2012
"The Mayans! The Mayans!", We scream with a shout!
The world must be ending when their calendar’s out.
Chicken Little should've taught us this lesson in a story of old,
When you think the end is nearing, just wait and let reality take hold.
First research the facts, then verify them,
Because only a fool would believe on a whim.
So now let’s "get the skinny" from an expert or two,
Only to find that our gullible thinking was not based on a clue.
Archaeoastronomer Aveni says in 2012 the end will not come,
Why? Because the Mayans only kept past time with a hum!
This future concept - while normal to us - was beyond the Mayans to look,
More important to them was the farmer's almanac, found in their Dresden Codex book.
According to Aveni, the Mayans cared little about future predictions,
They were more interested in the ancestors and divine convictions.
So for the "lesson to be learned" so that the truth may be told,
This is just one of that grand ole stories we will share once we're old,
Rather than aimlessly worry about the end coming nigh',
Why not use this opportunity to get right with God?
He is the one referred to as the Lord Most High.

If the End of the World in 2012 hype intrigues you, maybe you should consider reading Dr. Aveni's book, The End of Time: The Maya Mystery of 2012.
Book description from his website:
"December 21, 2012. The Internet, bookshelves, and movie theaters are full of prophecies, theories, and predictions that this date marks the end of the world, or at least the end of the world as we know it. Whether the end will result from the magnetic realignment of the north and south poles, bringing floods, earthquakes, death, and destruction; or from the return of alien caretakers to enlighten or enslave us; or from a global awakening, a sudden evolution of Homo sapiens into non-corporeal beings—theories of great, impending changes abound. In The End of Time, award-winning astronomer and Maya researcher Anthony Aveni explores these theories, explains their origins, and measures them objectively against evidence unearthed by Maya archaeologists, iconographers, and epigraphers. He probes the latest information astronomers and earth scientists have gathered on the likelihood of Armageddon and the oft-proposed link between the Maya Long Count cycle and the precession of the equinoxes. He then expands on these prophecies to include the broader context of how other cultures, ancient and modern, thought about the “end of things” and speculates on why cataclysmic events in human history have such a strong appeal within American pop culture."
