A very Mayan Christmas

- +

`Twas the last night on Earth, and all through the land,
All the creatures were stirring, anticipating the calamity at hand.
You see, back in the day there were these people called the Maya,
Who made a prophecy that some are treating like the word of messiah. 

The Maya devised calendar cycles through planets and stars they looked at,
Because in ancient civilizations they didn't have an iPhone app for that.
One such calendar was the Long Count with a cycle of 5,125 years,
And it's this silly little thing that's causing so many irrational fears.

The Long Count calendar concludes its cycle on December twenty-first,
Upon which all hell will be unleashed and we'll be forever cursed.
Yes, whether with disaster, aliens, or zombies it's gonna be doomsday,
And if you haven't already figured out, the Mayan end is happening today!
