From the ancient city he does declare,

But what if the end has not come?
For numbers go on Ad infinitum.
Many have said the same before,
Buddhist, Witness, Evangelist to the core.
Not one the riddle have solved,
ever since man evolved.
Where to now, what is foreseen?
Is there anything better in 2013?
Superstition still holds sway,
and hold common sense at bay.
So many wrong from every groove,
no religion has yet been proved.
But one thing for now is certain,
you know not when is the final curtain.
Calendars are out of sync,
I have the right date, so you think.
But like religion you cannot predict,
what is carrot and what is stick.
Death by fire, death by flood,
can you choose? If only you could.
When all has been swept away,
about you then what will they say?
Are you worthy of reward?
What about you will they record?
Have you been a friend or foe?
To which afterlife will you go?
As what was you is no more,
and your reputation now is tore.
Can you say I did my best?
Did you try to be better than the rest?
When this planet has lost it's lustre,
if there was anyone left to muster,
Who will exhalt your name?
Can you say you have no shame?
