Love Story in the Setting of the Apocalypse

There was a boy in a far away town,

and as he watched the world burn down,

he thought of all the girls he never loved

being washed away in the fiery flood.

For each girl, he shed one tear

until the ground was wet and the air was clear.

But the forlorn boy continued to weep

until his tears created a river so deep

that somewhere far across the world,

the water reached a lonely girl

and slowly, she began to swim.

She rode the waves back home to him.

And to this day, the people tell

the story of the world’s farewell,

and how one boy and one girl

and their love saved the world.
