The Wasteland Limericks

The world it was changed with aplomb,
When they let loose the nuclear bomb.
After living in fear
For many a year,
Now it’s time to leave Vault 101.

But fighting the bandits is hell,
When your shotgun does run low on shells,
And a fire it does stoke,
When Pip-Boy says it broke!
Soon they’ll ring my funeral bells.

And I could get lost for some days,
In the Capital Wasteland’s big maze,
The direction they say
Has debris in the way!
Trying to go round puts me in a daze!

Everyone draws their guns in due time
When they see you committing a crime,
But everyone leaveth,
When they see a Behemoth,
Oh, where’s my Fat Man at this time!

Poet’s Note –
A set of limericks inspired by the popular video game series Fallout, depicting problems that the player may encounter.

My muse is like an excitable dog. It catches sight of totally random things and starts yapping and running around and wagging its tail and WILL NOT STOP until I write a poem about it.My poetry is sometimes based on personal experience and sometimes on other things. Aside from that, I enjoy video games (My favourite game series is Mass Effect) and the popular television show My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic.

Deserted Wasteland short poem

Life invades the truth. Who cares? The night was thin, my eyes will search for stars. Now pain travels, backward from a smile? A myth unfolds the terror, of infinite tomorrows, an escape from the eternity? We will die, only


Wasteland short poem

Corpses floating in the river A child slowing dying at the roadside Watching men unload massive sacks of rice She pleaded and cried Gunshots heard in the night Screams for mercy unheard The smell of death filled the air Lifeless
