I feel as if I ought to send
A warning out to one and all:
Beyond the bend's a cliff, a fall,
A tragedy, a blur, a blend
Into a gorgeous, awful end.
And then inconsequentially
What would become of you and me?
Ah! Let it come here anyway.
Yes, Come tomorrow. Come today!
Embrace the opportunity.

Linked to Ronovan Writes Décima Poetry Challenge where the challenge is to use “blend” as a rhyming word in the A lines. The poem has ten lines with rhyme pattern ABBAACCDDC.

  1. That is your duty Frank my dear
    The red light to us all to show
    Important warnings that you know.
    To save us from what we all fear
    Rescue us from danger so near
    Such perils lie for us in wait
    It’s clear we can’t escape our fate.
    Danger and knowledge are the blend
    To die is our ultimate end
    Keep us safe the Reaper can wait.
