The End of The World

The world ended last night
so we went to the roof of the building
to watch it all unfold
Underneath a fire-lit sky
we unfolded a blanket
and set out our food
as demons devoured children
we devoured our chicken salad
as the seas boiled and cities burned
we sipped our lemon tea
and fed each other finger food
Though we couldn't hear a word
over the screams of bloody murder
we held hands and kissed softly
as we took it all in
Nero would have been proud of us
and our picnic in the sky
but as I watch my world burn and rot
not a tear shall fill my eye
