The Sky was on Fire - A Poem

The world ended today.

No one saw it coming,

But everyone noticed,

When the sky was on fire.

They all stared at the once blue sky.

It was now dark and angry with flames igniting the clouds.

Everyone stared.


How did this happen?

Why did this happen?

The world ended today.

The sky was on fire.

No one saw it coming.

Well, no one but me.

I saw it coming.

I pushed the button.

The one that said, “Do Not Touch!”

Don’t tell me what to do.
