End of the world.

Written for the Weekly Terrible Poetry Contest #63

“It is the end of the world,” someone chokes; there is a lull.
Stockpiling food for twenty years and toilet paper rolls,
But we’re all out—what do we do
Go out to Walmart, brawl with others like a zoo;
Then leave empty handed—outside, someone is selling them $100 per half roll!

  1. These times remind us that being open to new thoughts can be useful.
    Toilet paper can be many a thing, unneeded papers, soft leaves, newspaper, washable material squares with napisan in a bucket.
    Good times for those who have what they need, but always wash your hands!

    1. Yes, excellent advice! It’s always good to be open minded to new ideas in times of crisis. Thank you for your comment, friend, and stay safe! 🙂


  2. We live in a crazy world….where people think of themselves….What happened to the awareness? We surely live in the modern world with big ego, where we don’t think of others…narrow minded…shallow minded…

    1. Sadly. 😦
      I think there was a couple who made over seventy thousand dollars by reselling lysol wipes after buying large quantities of them. It’s crazy what has been happening.
