Apocalypse Zone

As bystanders cunningly destroyed
Employed forgiveness given, hastily indulged
Just keep living, make no opinion
Pretend quite rifles silence the
Unheeded visceral warning:
Xeroxed yobbos zombie

Good morning and welcome to National Poetry Writing Month, Day 10. Today’s prompt is to write an abecedarian poem – a poem with a structure derived from the alphabet. There are a couple of ways of doing this. It could be a poem of 26 words, in which each word begins with a successive letter of the alphabet. Or you could write a poem of 26 lines, where each line begins with a successive letter.

I took the shorter version of writing today because I’m busy getting ready for my 50-mile race tomorrow. Race is a loose term, for me it’s more of just a run, and by the end I will resemble a Xeroxed yobbo zombie.
