And a Child shall lead them

Recommended Posts

Found this during a quick cursory search at work for millenniumistic poetry.  Thought is was interesting, considering the age of the author:

Apocalypse

By Nathan, Grade 5, Handley Program, Saginaw, Michigan, USA

As Armageddon approached, millions cried out

Still millions more hid

Every person was for his or her self

And it didn't matter if you were a cat or a kid

It took disaster to bring out the worst in people

The end of the world was helped in mind

By the fact that it was all gone, there was no more

But even more so by the fact that people wouldn't help there own kind

So they wept and prayed for solace

While the Earth was nearing obliteration

More and more were finally happy

Even as they were about to be wiped from the face of creation

Many reached serenity

Just before the end

And everything was finally peaceful

As mankind quietly rounded its last bend

[end]

Thoughts, anyone?

Upbeat Vibes,

Hi Scott,

That's excellent! Bearing in mind our school system is different from yours, how old would a child likely be in Grade 5?

Regards,

Gra.

Yeah, I thought it was pretty incredible coming from a 5th grader.  In USA that would be about 9 or 10 years old.

Upbeat & Away,

I always thought US kids were brighter than UK kids age for age! This proves it!
