Julia at http://www.juliasplace.org.uk gave us … would this be the day when life changed … as a prompt this week. Here’s my take:
December 21, 2012.
There are some who wonder would this be the day when life changed.
There are others who ask if all life will end that day.
Still more who say it’ll be just another rising and setting of the sun. A day to bring in the harvest, then eat, drink, smoke and enjoy making children.
It started off as a joke. Us calendar makers winding up the priests. Seeng who could come up with the most outrageous prophecies. But now the Mayan people themselves have started to believe us.
Still. By the time 2012 actually comes around, no one will be that gullible. Surely.
