Judgement-Induced Introspection

The end of the world draweth nigh and thy beloved Karee hath decided to look within herself, figuratively, to see if there be any reason why the Lord mayest deny her entry into the Kingdom that cometh tomorrow.


The very first reason I have found is the mere fact that I do not want to go anywhere- not until September after I have seen Sting1 live and in living color anyway. Come to think of it, I wouldn’t mind the rapture if somehow Freddie Mercury were raised from the dead and Queen put on a grand concert to herald the King’s return [Michael Jackson?, James Brown?, Elvis?]. Celia Cruz would be a great opening act and certainly Bob Marley has to be there to perform “Buffalo Soldier” while Willie Nelson sneaks a puff from his Chillum then limbers up for his final and most glorious performance of “On the Road Again”. Certainly people like Vybz Kartel and Pamputtae will not even have the status of mere memories on such a glorious day. *Snapping out of it* Sorry for getting carried away.

I also have too much laundry to make it to heaven and I HATE washing whites. The Bible has commanded that we “wash our robes” in order to make it before the Throne of God. I did ask my religious advisor2 about this and she said it wasn’t literal so I guess I have a loophole there. She says it means being purified as a result of having gone through great trials, if this be true I can’t think of a better washed robe then than mine, but I still don’t want to go anywhere until September.


I don’t know what God has up his sleeves and I am sure that Harold Camping doesn’t either so I have decided to stop pondering this issue, plus I have work to get on with. If you are among the believers, it is too late to ask for the deed to your house so I will not bother; instead you can leave me a comment justifying tomorrow being the end and the advantages of being among the ‘raptured’.

Happy Judgement, Camping’s followers and to my Jamaicans who still plan to be around please help out in one of your communities’ Labour Day Projects on Monday which will focus on our children. Judgment day or not, walk good.

    I like your use of satire …let’s see what happen shall we. Compared to 1999 there has certainly been much more attention on “the Rapture”. I wonder if it has anything with the increase in technology with social network or Camper network/gang/followers have increased?

    Find a group that will allow you hang with them, and make sure you have your camera:-)

      Really? I don’t assume knowledge that he smokes at all, I just imagine him smoking one.

    Amusing, though, technically, Willie Nelson doesn’t smoke a chillum.

    This is truth….i am not a docile person, yet this topic was a mind boggling one. honestly i was chilling with the “Peer pressurers” last night(it was great), but i found myself looking every now and then in marvel of my domain(from the ground, horizon, all around and up to the space bodies).

    We discussed the concept of this judgement day prediction and proceeded to act as though we were looking towards the end. first point to note is that the “peer pressurers” is a group that is intrinsically of the arts and this combination of the various areas only acted as a catalyst for the expressiveness that came as a result of acting out the last minute of our lives
    .
    After it all, the conclusion was revealed to be evidently true love, peace and good will towards men. So i said ok so Christians of those days were believing what many in the modern day would refer to as superstition, and they did so as a means of solidarity everyday. I could imagine a world like that where immorality and things of the devil did not abide amongst those who are heavenly.

    From this concept there is a simple truth which is the ultimate lesson in my opinion. Those who seek truth shall grow in wisdom. It is not always healthy to go with your gut feelings- sometimes the head should be engaged before the mouth. You would be surprised at the ignorance of so many, many who are bent on being stubborn because they are very slow and lack logical understanding. Imagine how much some lack in wisdom. Judgement day?….oh! when that day comes i hope i will be ready.
