With a Nod to Ann @ Writeclub……

Before the lights went out

families were enjoying the stuff on tv

while mum and dad were heating stuff in the cooker for tea

and the earth warmed up another n’th of a degree

Before the lights went out

there was celebrations in night time streets

as illuminations danced to funky beats

and families noshed on all kinds of eats

meanwhile the power started to retreat

as the earth warmed up another degree

And as the power did go out

the consumers they all began to shout

solar panels were the call

a stop to dirty power did fall

on the ears of car-makers, power stations all

the lights went out for a week and a day

and as the usage started to flee

the earth cooled down by one degree
