bombs falling all around
or rather
just a couple of them
but they are powerful
enough to
wipe out humanity

so let me crawl
into my inner
sanctuary, build
a barricade of books, rags
and rugs, boxes and
biscuit tins (pretty
much like the forts
I built as a child)

and now the attack is hurtling towards me
will find me out in a mere ninety seconds

fired by enemy who
was once our friend

how did this
so fast, so fast get
completely out of hand
