The End is Near

The end is nearIn the midst of those anxious times
He took rather draconian measures

And ordered the destruction of all books
To discourage an omnilegent population

He made the people feel uncertain
About the future of humanity

And when he preached “the end is near”
He was opening the gateway to hell
