The Apocolypse

The world was going along just fine
Mexicans were killing themselves like always

aficionados were going crazy over senseless sports
good religious people were at each others’ throats

the ice caps were melting for liberals
the ice caps were not melting for conservatives

God was either dead or alive
depending on what distorted point of you held

and everybody knew everybody’s business on Facebook
the world was apparently spinning on its axis

one day NASA failed to spot a giant asteroid
which wiped out most of humankind

only the Mexican race survived the devastation
Acosta’s people had somehow triumphed once again

soon they were killing each other otra vez
the world was going along just fine.
