The Lyrics

When the Mayan Calendar Calamities subside, will U.S. survivors be rescued by FEMA and healed by Obamacare? original lyrics here
If great thunder rumbles drum the sky,
If warm seas should globally run high,
Cliffs above me, please don't shove me;
Let me crap in my throne chair.

If I scream, my fear could fall apart;
I can feel hot bile burn my heart.
Peace's dove be near above me;
Let no flappin' starlings nigh my lair.

I'm no match for shooting star;
I can't "wing it" very far
If I only pray when scared.
I can shake when mountains fall;
I'll rue anything that's tall,
As strong and few are spared.

When at last my strife on Earth is through,
I will swear infirmity, it's true.
If "blue" government still loves me,
Let me tap in, scarfing my fair share.

I submitted this at the Winter Solstice (northern hemisphere) at 1212 GMT on 21 Dec. 2012.

If "Let me crap in my throne chair." offends, change it to "Let me wrap my Christmas fare." Also "I will swear infirmity, it's true." could be "I will bear infirmity that's new."

Clever subbing here and interesting OS choice. The earnestness of the original helps the humor along.

Thanks, Lifeliver. "When The Last Days' strife on Earth is through" is better than "When at last my strife on Earth is through" for apocalyptic foreboding.
