Fire in the Sky for SL-Week

“Red sky at night, sailor’s delight. Red sky in morning, sailor’s warning”

The Sky is Falling


“The sky is falling upon us…”
The peasant screamed
As he ran towards the small village
Horrified, like woken from a bad dream
Panting heavily, before the sentence he could finish

“There will be no tomorrow”
The village elder retorted
As he looked into the horizon in sorrow
But hoping for one more day to borrow

As the flaming rays of the sun
Aptly, were the smoking gun
Had painted the skies red
Scaring the villagers under their beds

Sitting on the porch
Lit by a flaming torch
Was a little girl with courage
And eating her porridge
Looking up at the sky
As an evil smile her face passed by

“Oh, you foolish elders
Looking for a coward’s shelter
It’s not the end of the world as we know it
But a nature’s game of wit
No need to go all bananas,
Just relax and try enjoying
The beautiful painting
On the sky’s canvas”
