Anarchy

Originally called "Row Your Boat", I changed the title because it seemed better to work with. This is perhaps my version of the nursery rhyme "Row Your Boat". Comments are open.

Anarchy

Anarchy

Row
Row
Row
Your Boat
With Panic
In your eyes.

Know that this isn’t
A dream
Nor is it
A nightmare
Either.

For it is not safe
On water
Nor on land.

On shore
There are
Burning Skyscrapers.

People are screaming
In every direction
For they know
All too well
Their End
Is near.

And everyone
Is getting in
Their own
Row Boat
To pull away
From all of this.

But their
Hopes
Are crushed
When a bigger boat
Comes along
And crushes them
With their dreams.

Amusingly
The Bigger Boat
Doesn’t Stop.

Everything
Is in a
Chaotic Scramble
For no one
Wants to die.

But lets face it
We all Die
Eventually.

Better sooner
Than later.

Better to die
Head First
Than
Feet First.

There are
Dead Bodies
In the water.

One must wonder
If all the humans
On Earth
Drowned.

Would the corpses
Pile up
On the ocean floor
And make an Island?

Or even
A continent?

Amusingly
We’re already dead
We just don’t
Realize it.

And we Row
Our boats
With pain
In our arms
And body.

Rowing away
From everything
That we thought
As normal
Only to realize
That this is
The New Normal.

And the Cherry
On top
Would be
The Bigger Boats
Filled with panic-stricken
Passengers
That run over
The Row Boats
Killing the person
Or people
In them.

And you thought
Rowing Your Boat
Gently
Down a Stream
Was a good idea.
