My sixth entry into the poetry tournament...
I'm waking up to ash and dust
I wipe my brow and I sweat my rust
I'm breathing in the chemicals
I'm breaking in, shaping up, then checking out of the prison bars
This is it, the apocalypse
- Radioactive by Imagine Dragons
This is my entry
for the fifth round
's Scratch That Poetry Tournament
. As the rules stated, the participants could write about something fantasy
... without including
overly depressing subject matter
The theme for this round was Fantasy
. Deliciously fun, as alway!
In conjecture, however; the piece had to be written as ballad
I have been so inspired lately by all thing apocalyptic. I heard Radioactive
on the radio this morning and I was all like... must
Lucky for me, I did.
Please let me know what you think. I'd love some feedback on this.
