WANT Original Content

Prompt: Create a poem addressing a current event. Be creative and have fun!

I see, perceive, and receive a feeling of hope

Its an article that dips into science fiction

The future would certainly confuse the Pope

Surprise arises from their diction

There will always be people attached to the pure

Contradictions arise, but hope for jobs continues

Education prepares life learning; the future is near
