WIP (Poem) – Counting down

Two thousand one thousand five hundred none
Some shake their sad heads while others make fun
All watching and waiting til everyone’s gone
Two thousand to one thousand to five hundred to none

Two thousand to one thousand to five hundred to none
The worst score in the worst game when it’s over and done
To lose all the places and daughters and sons
By two thousands and one thousand and five hundred and none

By two thousands and one thousand and five hundred and none
I wonder what’s left out here under the sun
Who’ll happily stay when all life here is gone
From two thousand to one thousand to five hundred to none

From two thousand to one thousand to five hundred to none
Leaving the harbours and tickles and sounds
We all turn our backs and count ourselves down
Two thousand
One thousand
Five hundred
