Science Fiction - The Sky Is Red And The Sun Is Not The Same - Poem by Paul Warren

As I wandered along the paths
They were there just out of my grasp
When it seemed I could reach and touch them
They disappeared into the scrub at their end

So onward I tread trying to get back home
But where I am is not well known
The sky is red and I can't find the sun
I wish this journey would have not begun

I remember the cliff so near as I stumbled to the edge
It seems as I went down I struck my head on the ledge
And now I can't remember anything or my name
Or why the sky is red and the sun is not the same.

    no no no you do remember the name
    sky sun cliff and so you are just the same
    after the fall you may have become lame
    or its colour blindness now to blame

    first visit a doctor
    your do if you know his name
    else you will be red
    and sun not dead
    as yet
