dVerse Poet’s: The answer is 42

Poets have been enticed to write a poem using only questions.

Is it real?

Do you see the sky burning up in glorious flames or is it just me?

I think I heard a whispered answer in the distance between you and me, but maybe not?

What if that was a sign of things to come, would you be scared?

If you saw your city burning up while sitting on a sailing boat, where would you go?

Where are the screams on complacent streets allowing two insane leaders play with fire?

I don’t know the answer, do you?

    Good question about the burning city seen from the sailing boat. I don’t know what I would do. It may depend on what needed to be done at the moment.

  3. I think the complacency we are all guilty off is going to bite back at some point.

      And then the question would be, “Why didn’t the world do anything?” I think I’ve heard that question before, echoing through time.


  4. Frightening questions that are preoccupying us all. Well written.

  6. Started off quite gentle, ended up somewhere really scary. It feels like there are more questions than answers at the moment. Maybe there always are.
