It was less than a second
Maybe half a second
Or so it seemed…
But it changed everything…
Cracks in the wall
What do they foretell?
Fade to black…
Mushroom cloud
Brings a firestorm…
Roaches watch as
We push up daisies
If anything survives…
Is this a world we want?
Is this the world
We should give
To our children?
It’s the ultimate
Literal dead end…
If this sounds right
You must be crazy!
Never was it more
The way to see things…
Make love, not war

      Thank you, Suzanne. I had the germ of an idea before the prompt came on Friday. It fit the idea, so I fleshed it out. Then came PAD, and I made it a twofer. Yesterday I was the bug…today the windshield?
