NaPoWriMo: Day 5

Poetry prompt: What’s in the news today?

Pick one news headline and that can be something you really dislike; now write your own news that are quite the opposite, news you would like to hear or read in the newspaper, news in the form of poem or a story.

Original news: Evidence of ancient ‘geological Brexit’ revealed

The UK has now started the formal process of leaving the EU, but scientists say they have evidence of a much earlier “Brexit”. They have worked out how a thin strip of land that once connected ancient Britain to Europe was destroyed. The researchers believe a large lake overflowed 450,000 years ago, damaging the land link, then a later flood fully opened the Dover Strait.The scars of these events can be found on the seabed of the English Channel.

My response:

There are no borders.
The tailor of world maps lost his pen:
The stitches of our joint hands now hold this
earth together.

  1. It would be a lovely world if those who think themselves better than others would stop stealing food, money, power, health and life away from others, and instead would give those resources they take for granted to those in need. Thank you for your lovely poem.
