No one in the streets an eerie stillness
where had people gone there had been
rumours of a nuclear holocaust one
that would engulf the whole country and
the domestic landscape would burn to
cinders, which was what the people had
been told by the owners of news media.
Cats and dogs to had disappeared but rats
stayed millions of them coming up
from the sewers enjoying the sunlight and
the food humanity had left them, for
once they could eat cheese by a table and
use napkins also. But one unanswered
question hung like a pub sign in the wind
where had the people gone? Look towards
the sea, the man had become seals, the natural
element whence we came and sought at
summer time before putting clothes on and
moving back to dry land.
The nuclear war didn`t come cats and dogs
who didn`t join the great exodus was left by
the strand to find their future.
