Without Warning

Listen to poem:
Without Warning David J Walker Remembering when Every weekend Was 50 years in the future Remembering when Love was an elusive dream That didn’t mean A single thing if not loneliness Remember when rain Was a synonym for Depression Remember when the Sun Was worshiped for its Powers to bake our skin Crisp and brown Enhancing our chances to attract The opposite sex Remember when we were told We would never grow old Or at least we would never wrinkle Remember when so many things Would never ever happen But they have At last Come to pass Without warning
