Write a poem with ‘I think the world is going bonkers today’ as the first line and maybe also as a refrain – you know that it has to be done!

I think the world is going bonkers today
Throwing a wobbly, spinning in its grave
Screaming, “Stop me, I want to get off!”
Whilst holding itself aloft – in space

Aloft in the space in the loft in space
Just above the cosmic master bedroom
Stops to start to stare at the space below the stairs
Which holds the loft aloft

Streaks straight down the banister
Airlifts up the stairlift till it’s lost in the loft in space
Stares at the stars who laugh as the stairs
Start to strain systematically

There’s a weight on the world
Driving a wedge under the door of the cosmic master bedroom
Just below the loft in space
I think the world is going bonkers today
Lost and spaced
