Word Bank Exercise
from the word bank: “Icons: the past century is being summarized with a quick twist.”
The past century is being summarized with a quick twist:
On the seventh day, God rested,
but he woke up on the eighth day,
and boy was he pissed!
“So I take some time to recuperate
to make myself feel well.
I create the entire universe,
and you just let it go to hell.”
We hoped he’d have a sense of humor
see the irony in our stupidity,
but that was a little too optimistic.
“Falling flames would work, I think
or maybe storms and floods.
No punishment seems quite adequate,
and I’d rather see your blood.”
The vengeful creator was back
and he was intent on making us pay
for everything we ruined.
“You break it, you bought it
and you don’t have my currency
so I’ll take back what’s rightfully mine
consider this your ‘state of emergency.’”
We run and hide, but it does no good
to try and escape something
so amazingly powerful.
“Made of clay and dumb as brick
it’s time to strike the match.
Now excuse me while I cleanse the world
and begin building again... from scratch.”
