A Packing List for the End of the World

A Packing List for the End of the World

You don’t need those pants.

You don’t need that shirt.

You don’t need to eat kale in order to be healthy.

You needn’t wear a suit to rule the world.

You don’t have to shop in Camden Town to be a punk.

You don’t need a quiff to love rockabilly.

You don’t need satan to love m√ętal.

You don’t need a god to be moral.

You don’t have to be dumb to be —-.

You don’t need a drink.

You don’t need hot pants.

You don’t need auto-tune.

You don’t need to be better than somebody else.

You really don’t need that shirt.

Look around you.

Gather up your friends. Your lovers. Your cat. A small clump of grass.

Hold them.

Close your eyes.

Don’t let go.
