Joey roared across the frozen flat land
Devoid of human life.
He bobbed his head and tapped his hand
Sitting next to his wife.
She swayed and sang along to the music
The kids giggling in the back
Each one wearing a warm tunic
Good humour they surely did not lack
“We’re almost home” cried dad,
Earning a cheer from his family
It was the best day they’d ever had
Racing ahead to see the dome’s canopy
Bringing the grey vehicle to a stop
They did up their coats and donned their masks
Then each disembarked with a hop
And headed to the door avoiding the cracks.
Inside was the last forest on earth
Their home that kept them safe
Though the planet outside lacked mirth
In here that was hardly the case.
Smiling people ran and greeted their frozen friends
While the storm outside swirled.
The apocalypse may have brought a terrible end
But in here at least, it was perfect world
