The world will end on Wednesday.

Between this life and the afterlife the borders will be closed and the queues for them enormous, likely violent and almost certainly infiltrated by the vigilantes.

One crumb of comfort: those with righteousness behind them will be fast-tracked out of darkness into light that is the light of the soul's eyes.

However, before Armageddon, why not pop over to Andrew Shields's place and have a go at his Daily Poem Project. More than worth a look - and who knows, you might get hooked!

Thanks for the link, Dave! I took a look and you're right, I might get hooked!

Tabor said...

Great...one more blog to add to my reading list. I must get outside more!

Shadow said...

aaah, thanks for the link, got some reading to do now... be safe with the aliens.

Michelle said...

Oh so that's what happened :)

Butler and Bagman said...

Thanks for the link. And I definitely felt the hook beginning to set...But until I actually get rid of my day job through retirement or firing or quitting...I can't do both poetry and photography...I'll probably swing the pendulum sometime in the fall.

I'm "popping" now......


Renee said...

Giggle Friday indeed Dave.

Love this post. I forget already what day to we have to have our bags packed, or is that only for the righteous?

Love Renee xoxox

thanks for the link :)

It can't end on Wednesday - I have got something planned - could you make it Thursday instead please?

Am off to check that link now Dave.

Nice to see you on my site. Thanks for the link to Andrew. I've perhaps unwisely joined a group vowing to write a poem a day for national Poetry month, but he has a headstart on all of us.

The world ends Wednesday! Is that before ,or after, Coronation Street?

Stephen Dell'Aria said...

What happens on Thursday? Nice link.

Thanks for visiting my blog today Dave, I am glad you liked Alex's poem, I have a trunk full of them, he was prolific, a lot of them have quite a dark side. Also thankyou for the link, I will take a look;

Lady Glamis said...

Oh no! Another great blog! Thanks for the link. :)

Is that gonna be the Wednesday of this week or next Dave? I really want to be prepared.
(I'm having a little Chemotherapy right now and am way behind on my comments though I have been dropping in on my favourite blogs which of course you are one of).
Hope your weekend is filled with much love, joy and laughter Dave and....

Steady On

Wednesday hmm? Well I have an exam on Tuesday, could we maybe move it up a day instead?


lakeviewer said...

Yes, we may all get hooked!

Adrian LaRoque said...

Well...Until there I am drinking a few more beers and read your blog!

Karen said...

Oh, Dave, just when I'm feeling blogged down, you recommend another site! ;-)

lakeviewer said...

Back to you, Dave. I enjoy your stimulating posts, getting educated without leaving my house.

Cloudia said...

Wraith-like words, Dave!
Aloha, my Friend

Dominic said...

Some headlines are impossible not to click on. Can't resist the old joke, so Armageddon myself over to Andrew Shield's place :)

Dave King said...


That could be me talking...

They'll not touch I!


Butler and Bagman
Be a pity to let the photography go - or the poetry!

Enjoy your pop!

Got to sometimes, haven't you?

Have fun.

Weaver of Grass
I don't have that sort of influence - besides, Thursday doesn't resonate with with "world will end" the way "Wednesday" does!

Go give it all you've got.

After - definitely.

Most of us will still be queuing, of course!

I did like the poem, very much. Most of us have our dark side - nothing wrong with that.

Lady Glamis
Not at all. The blog needed it, I thought.

Midlife, menopause, mistakes and random stuff.
Yup, this week. Sure of that. I'm crossing my fingers that you won't need the chemo after Wednesday.

Purple Clover
Sorry. See my reply to Weaver of Grass!

Lake Viewer
MMM, quite possibly.

I approve of both.

Why not wait, see what they have in the afterlife?

Lake Viewer
Maybe I ought to try to educate folk to leave the house?


I was hoping it might work like that...

hope said...

Hmmm, I didn't get here in time...did everyone leave without me?

Then again, this coming Wednesday is April Fool's Day....


Art Durkee said...

Glad to finally have a date for world's end. Glad to have that off my mind. Now I can waste my remaining time in good conscience.

Of course, if reports of Doom turn out to be premature, I'll be back with the pitchforks and the torches and the teeming hordes storming the castle. . . .

jinksy said...

Never mind Armageddon - Daemon Mailer still has you blacklisted, according to my continuing returned emails! We are odviously destined to remain incommunicado...

Jenn said...

Sounds like its getting rave reviews, thanks for the suggestion, checking it out now!

Rebecca said...

Don't mind queuing, me. Love it. Just as long as there are no noisy teenagers with pies.

Not clicking on the poetry link as I already have 1000 words to write each day. The last thing I want to be doing is more writing...



Dave King said...

I didn't get to you very speedily, either.
So it is! Thanks for the visit and the comment.

Glad to have been of assistance.
Your second para sounds fun!

Maybe it's just in the run-up to Armageddon. Flexing the muscles, so to speak.

Here's to it.

Welcome. Understand completely. I feel a little like that, but for anyone with a little time to spare, it's a good idea.

Nice of you to say so.
