Two Coins for the Boatman

From Guatemala, Fe de Rata‘s blogger Juan Pablo Dardón, lists his plan [es] for the end of times:

I woke up early and put two golden coins
one for each shoe […]
two coins I'm telling you
when meteorites fall down and all this gets open as an orange […]
I'll put one in each eye
as I put my armas behind my head
that gets open as an orange […]
the boatman has work to do
and deserves to be tipped
