Ever After

By Mary Summerbell

Doom and gloom

predicted many days,

many ways of

Earth’s apocalyptic end

mistakenly foretold,

end of days a joke

except to those

eager for the Rapture,

certain of their

self-righteous salvation.

But what of us who doubt,

those with reservations,

but not the kind

assuring front row seats

for this final act,

this last dramatic scene of humanity’s

anticipated annihilation?

What if it’s just not so?

What if it’s just one more false prophecy?

What if the show is not a tragedy,

but a Divine Comedy

with a place for every one?

What if the last judgment is just the end

of us judging each other?

Some endings are happy.
