Star's collasped

Rockets fell second

Hour zero began preflight

Oceans leaped, froze, and danced

Math science mythology astronomy theory

A small fraction of time

Few believed Earth's end

"Due to heaier than normal call volume," the voice added, "your service provider is unable to complete your call at this time. Please try again later." Mariette groaned. In fact, she barely resisted the urge to hurl the phone across the car in frustration. "Stay calm she reminded herself as she eased her car around a hubcap that had rolled from a wrecked vehicle into the center of the four-lane roadway. On both sides of the busy highway, traffic was nearly at a standstill She'd tried the side streets but had found them mostly impassable. Wrecked and abandoned cars littered the roads.

Moon Cycle

Today the moon fades

Back into a cresent shape

Then into a sphere

Influencing the oceans tides

Complete one day in a month


The magicians hat 

The magican stood up and took off his hat. He pulled out  carrot, a card and a cat. Then a marble, and a match.

The audiance laughed

the rabbit was behind the mans stand.



                   Fast small

          Soaring floating diving

Flying above clouds, roaming pecking

        Running walking graising      

                   Big Loud

On the streets lifeless and poor, could you tell this man once fought in a war?


There was a duck

Who had very bad luck

It wandered away

And didn’t come back until the next day.

When it came back It lost its eyepatch.
