The End Is Near

The Doomsday Conspiracy

Doomsday is the theme for the day, and seemingly for the year. Poetic Asides used that trend for its prompt of the day is this April poetry challenge. Write a Doomsday poem. That’s about as straightforward a prompt as any could find.

So here’s my take on the subject for today.

 

 

 

 

 

It’s Coming, Pay Attention


White bears with patchy hair

Move inland in search of lair.

Seabirds take new route home,

Veering distant, old paths to roam.

Bees that make honey so sweet

Die away, less pollen to sweep.

Water/land dwellers all,

Gasping, grasping, failing, fall.

Weather gone insane ‘tween now and then,

Leaving us to ask, “This happened when?”

Enjoy your weekend, folks. Stay safe if you’re in the storm zone, watch the beaches for denizens of the surf that can cause harm, or sit in the sun with drink in hand. After all, it might be your last enjoyable weekend for a while.

    But Claudsy…don’t you know that Santorum called global warming a hoax? I guess he prefers fire and brimstone, it’s more dramatic.

    Very nice and appropo poem!

      Thanks, jp. I’m glad you thought it appropriate. As for Santorum, well, sometimes those at the forefront can’t see what rushing up their backsides. It’s called being blind-sided.

    I should have known it was about nature. It’s great.

      Would we notice anything without it being our alert system? Doubt it. Glad you liked it, Val.
