INSPIRED BY THE FILM DON’T LOOK UP Humanity has become oblivious, ignorant to an inevitable lightening quick catastrophe, Politicians and the rich and famous are known for their eccentric outrageous audacity, Nobody has anything nice to say to anyone, anywhere, so totally unsatisfactory, Each human being doing their own thing like ants, on a mission no more philanthropy. Scientists work around the clock to save our planet Earth, animals and humanity, Drugs consumed for fun, medication abused, both lowered humans’ immunity A pandemic revolved around our globe, thus millions suffered and died, internationally Scientist who study our galaxy, predict a life threatening event to happen imminently affecting us globally. Don’t human beings realize that a comet might be coming to town and our planet will be extinct, dive Into oblivion, the rich and famous will live, it is the poor, the hungry that Humanity will deprive, The opulent and their money think they can extend their life, and thus forever and ever stay alive, Build a rocket with capsules for themselves, animated in time, in which they stupidly hope to survive. Wow, presume encapsulating oneself in time, a rocket in space comes true, and nobody fries, Arising from the dead metaphorically in 20900 returning to earth, finding things have changed, surprise, Surprise, no humans inhabit Planet Earth anymore, what will they meet, perhaps their demise, The Chinese saying, may your wishes come true, actually a curse, hope you have said your goodbyes.

Our Mother Earth breathes, lives and is sentient as we are. When we poison her we poison us too. Beautifully expressed Jennifer. Those in power had better understand that her welfare is ours. Blessings xxoo

A very alarming situation looming before us . The spread of the pandemic , the abuse to mother Earth and the resultant climate change, the callousness of the rich, the audacity of men in power.... all beautifully summarized here... ! A great write indeed !

very meaningful one, Jennifer. I found the movie a bit dull but it's got fantastic ratings with Netflix and I find your poem was well inspired by the movie. Frankly I am guessing the end is very near. Sure does seem that way to me with all the evil in the world.

You have certainly given us a load to digest here. I may be working on this until the year 20,900!! Wishing you fewer and sweeter surprises, Jennifer. Hope and Faith, Gershon

As others have implied, that next big rock might be the calamitous one. The mammals came to rule the earth following the last big one, I wonder what would take over from us in the event of another. Glad you enjoyed the movie but I couldn’t help but ‘shout’ at the daft woman in charge. Did you watch right through the credits? Astronomical write, Jennifer. Terry

We need to take better care of the planet and each other or we will all perish, very astute and prescient observation, Jennifer (and your closing lines gave me a chill!)

It was an odd film, but I really enjoyed it! I've seen it twice now. I enjoyed your analysis, here. I think you'll enjoy Terry Flood's "Snookered" inspired by the same film! :)

You know Jennifer I agree and personally believe that a giant comet hitting the earth would be humanities great leveller, with today’s technology we wouldn’t stand a chance regardless weather rich or poor, nonetheless you have constructed a wonderful poem, that is entertaining and thought provoking, I enjoyed the ride, cheers David

Some are predicting that covid is just the start of whats to come and mankind continues to slowly destroy our planet. Dinasaurs became extinct through no fault of their own and here's us helping the catastrophe along. God help us. Hope your new year is off to a flying start Jennifer. Tom
