Fallout: A Collection of Poems

Fallout: A Collection of Poems


        Run for shelter 

  That’s the siren

        The bomb is dropping
  No time to change

         No time to love 

  Grab what you can

         Get yourself to safety 

  No time for holding hands

          No time for talking over 

  Expect the worst

          The blast will be terrible 

But the fallout

Much much worse. 

About The Author

Sam Barrowcliffe

I am nineteen years old and will begin studying English Literature and Creative Writing at the University of Warwick in September. Since starting at Mouthing Off as Creative Writing Editor, I have written and published a number of short stories and can’t wait to share even more. My favourite genres are horror and science – fiction and I take great inspiration from the likes of Rod Serling, Charlie Kauffman, H.P Lovecraft, Christopher Nolan and Phillip K. Dick. In the future, I hope to follow my dream of becoming a professional screenwriter and novelist, following in the footsteps of my idols. I look forward to publishing even more fiendish tales and I hope people will continue to enjoy reading them, as much as I have writing them!
