Thunder and lightning at first,
as I understand it,
and then the moon will split
 
in half and disappear
and the stars will go dark
and the sun will come up
 
and explode in the sky,
another Hiroshima.
Hurricanes and tornadoes
 
will savage the land.
Sickles and scythes
will harvest the people,
 
throw some in the air
shouting Alleluia,
toss others aside
 
shrieking and cursing.
Silence will boom
as the credits roll.
 
Bugs Bunny, the sage,
will have the last word:
“That’s all, folks!”
