Countdown

We are all so confident that we’re safe
Snuggling contentedly at home
Ignoring the rest of the world
Using our technology
Never realizing
How fragile life is
And how quickly
It could just
Disap-
Pear.

 

NaPoWriMo –  Day 24

[I came up with the concept of the Countdown poem when thinking about the Nonet. Quite simply, the form goes from 10 syllables per line (the Nonet uses 9) down to 1.]
