The Apocalypso Festival

Put it all away,
and what you end up having
is a sign of the impending apocalypse.

But you know what? It doesn’t
have to be all that bad if you’ve
prepared for it in some shape or form.

You could think about it in terms
of the novelty that one might associate
with such a fantastic set of circumstances,
giving it a kind of a game-type theme.

Maybe The Apocalypso Festival,
where we spin the end of times
into a fun night of rum drinks
and steel drum music. Those zombies

won’t know what the hell is going on
(not that they ever know anyway), and you’ll
have the satisfaction of knowing

that you did everything you possibly could
to ensure that the rest of your existence
on this planet is at least somewhat enjoyable.


Author: Aidan Badinger I am a poet. I write poems. Titles and subjects and subsequent readership are all part of one fragmented figment of our universe, and it's nice that we take it so seriously. Hopefully the craft remains and grows stronger for our children.
