GloPoWriMo: Day 22

It’s the 22nd day of GloPoWriMo and today’s prompt was to take one of the following statements of something impossible, and then write a poem in which the impossible thing happens:

The sun can’t rise in the west.
A circle can’t have corners.
Pigs can’t fly.
The clock can’t strike thirteen.
The stars cannot rearrange themselves in the sky.
A mouse can’t eat an elephant.

I have written a poem about the sun rising in the west.  I hope you find it interesting.

Sunrose

The first day the sun rose in the west
No-one noticed
The second day the sun rose in the west
The children said something was wrong
The third day the sun rose in the west
Photos appeared on Instagram
The fourth day the sun rose in the west
It was on the news
The fifth day the sun rose in the west
They said they would look into it
The sixth day the sun rose in the west
No-one cared any more
The seventh day the sun rose in the west
Was the last time it rose at all
