Against the clock
The sun grows hotter as time goes by
and animals attack from sea to land.
People’s hatred rises like a raging tide
while the leaders of the world rule with iron hands.
The grounds start shaking and dirt turns into water,
an illness spreads like wildfire.
A child disobeys both mother and father
and society is full of liars.
A great wall of ice that keeps the truth
from reaching the people’s minds.
They guard it with the power of a shark’s deadly tooth
but still they bother to show us the signs.
A flat horizon, a circling moon,
a dollar that’ll collapse to the worth of a dime.
If the masses keep sleeping it’ll be over soon
because the clock is running out of time.
Hi, there! Hope the weird, little poem-thingy you just read keeps you guessing on what it’s exactly about. It was fun to write. A guy was talking the other day and he mentioned some very interesting things that sort of inspired me to write this poem.
Thanks for reading and sharing. Have a nice day! (:
