The end of days

Eleven baskets full of promises
Seventeen kissing cousins
A packet of mixed flowery phrases
Throw in a soupçon of nepotism

Half a ton of antique groats
100 kilos of hush money

Fifty years of the moon’s phases
Five million tons of earth
And coral reefs may go to blazes

Mix, allow to ferment,
cook for half a century,
slather in oil,
garnish with plastic sprigs

… and serve

A picture calendar: images generated from each verse using
