2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 14 and 15

2012 April PAD Challenge: Day 14

For today’s prompt, write a doomsday poem. Some of you may remember the world was supposed to end last year (actually twice last year), but that’s nothing new. Every few years there seems to be a new “end of world” prediction (anyone remember Y2K?). In fact, this year had a movie made after it in relation to the Mayan calendar (btw, my dad is one of those who actually believes in the 2012 doomsday prediction), and there’s a whole industry built around end times preparations. So why not write a poem about it?
"Testing Doomsday"

In May,
pencils bubbling away,
leading towards the day
where fate now lays.
Awaiting results to say
if you made the grade
that will decided your fate.
One moment to relay
the year toiled away
on Testing Doomsday!

Day 15:  For today’s prompt, use the following five words in your poem: slash, button, mask, strap, and balloon. Use them in any order.

Balloons rise high,
towards the fiery button in the sky,
Masking the wooden strap,
attached to your back
that pulls you back down to Earth,
and slashes your dreams in half.
