Apocolapalooza


When it's too wet to walk, I set myself a task. Reading about Marion Cotillard today, I discovered she works with Greenpeace, an organization founded in Vancouver. Hence I this conservation ditty with a sense of  humour. I imagined Jesus coming back to earth (his "second coming tour") and being introduced by a chorus of back-up singers who trained in Motown.

We’re angels, from heaven
So happy to be here
Appearing all across the land
Helping man to understand
Offering a helping hand
Because the end is near…
We’re angels, of mercy        
Here to change your fate
Even though you’ve ruined earth
Where once was plenty, now there’s dearth
But God has hope with every birth
That it is not too late….
God is love, God is pure
He’ll ensure that you endure
He is back, and with a cure  
On His Second Coming Tour.
We’re angels, from paradise
We’re here to spread the word
We’ve seen your sins; we know our duty
Due to you, the future's moot-y
Stupid you ignored Suzuki
now it’s He who must be heard…
God is love, God is pure
He’ll ensure that you endure
He’s coming back, and with a cure 
On His Second Coming Tour.
We’re here from Nirvana
We speak in every tongue
He’s come again, and you know why
— And you know God would never lie —
If you don’t change, you’re gunna die
Drowning in your dung.
God is love, God is pure
And even though you’re immature
And filled the earth with your manure
Here he is and with a cure.   
We’re angels, from heaven
We’re really glad you’re here
Appearing all across the land
Helping man to understand
Offering a helping hand
Because your end is near…
