The Last Taco Truck on Earth

Irony isn't all
it's cracked up to be.
Two hours to kill
before the end of time.
No one has much of an appetite.

One group prays
to all the gods they can remember.
Another is having an orgy,
and there are the assorted teeth-gnashers.

I can't make up my mind
so I trade my watch for three tacos
and a beer, the only one left.
