A Blast Of Punctuation (Original Poem)

The blast of exclamation mark missiles exploding had such an impact that I was thrown several metres back!

The question mark flames melted all the buildings within sight, destroying and consuming all our dreams with them.

So many questions crossed my mind:

Will we ever recover?

What does the future look like?

But most importantly:

Why us?


The exclamation missiles whined through the air, causing explosion after explosion.

I only knew it was the end when I saw the little embers of full stops showering down to the ground, and the asterisks falling like snowflakes, restoring the calm.*


*The end?
