Tonight's Poet Corner: Surviving World War III

Surviving World War III
by Belinda Roddie

Sometimes I wish I could withstand
an atomic bomb with you. We'd drink
the radiation like wine and not feel
an ounce of pain. We'd gain superpowers
just like in the comic books and learn
how to resurrect the dead. We'd rebuild
what was destroyed and add gold leaf
to boot - of course, if there's any gold
leaf left in this scarred world after
the sound and the fury subsides.
