Today is the thirteenth day of GloPoWriMo and today’s poetry prompt was to write a poem in the form of a news article you wish would come out tomorrow.
The thirteenth day was typically unlucky for me and I really struggled to think of anything, probably because there are many things I could wish for at the moment. So I did go off on a bit of a tangent, and it is in the form of news, but not something I would necessarily wish to happen… I hope you enjoy it.
We interrupt this programme
for a breaking news item:
we can now confirm
that we are not alone in the universe.
We ask that you remain calm,
stay in your homes
and await further instruction
to be transmitted shortly.
your governments will surrender
and without a struggle.
In other news,
tomorrow will be a beautiful day.
