When the World Went Quiet

When the world went quiet,
we were all surprised.
It didn’t end how we'd planned
or how we’d surmised.
There was no nuclear war
no racial strife,
no food shortages
just massive loss of life.
The people just dropped off
never showing symptoms.
One moment you’d love them
the next you’d lose them.
A generation departed
so much lost,
we bickered over so much
money, land, food,
how the world was running
When trouble finally came..
We sat and did nothing.
So now stand the few.
The strong, the prudent,the wise
left beaten and broken
to say their goodbyes.
