Rembering the fears of Y2K
"Millennium-2000" by jaybird1
Hurry people, the millennium 
is headed straight our way.
Grab your food, your gun and money,
find your cave for Y 2 K.

Here come four horsemen galloping,
bringing pestilence and fear,
also death and war and famine,
seems like any other year.

Apocalyptic thinkers say
that our doom is fate decreed.
If this is Armageddon time
there should be no further need.

I'm taking bets and giving odds,
we'll survive this fearful date.
Be ready, steady now, prepare
for your rendevous with fate.

Written-October 1999



Author Notes
We all worried that everything was coming to a
crashing end with Y2K. Well, we are still here,but
for how long, I don't know-Jaybird
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
