The millenium came and went
without a whimper; without a bang.
Satellites stayed in their orbits.
Planes continued to take off and land.
Rivers still flowed to their oceans.
Domes and steeples continued to stand.
The sun set in Maracaibo
while it rose on the beach at Da Nang.
The Markets closed for the weekend
but they opened on Monday as planned.
Jesus did not bring the Rapture.
Satan did not ope the Gates of Hell.
I missed my train to Omaha.
Other than that things went fairly well.
