Bland On Bland – End Of The World

Bland On Bland – The BookThe theme for this week’s JVG Radio Method poem is “End Of The World“.

For the first time in 2 years, JVG and I were in the studio together.

Rather a unique experience after all this time. It turns out we last visited this theme back in 2011, I think I like this one better.

Ed Bates provided the idea and execution for the backing this week, the main news theme music backing was supplied by David @ fesliyanstudios.
Thatch provided the audio production, have a listen to how it went below…

End Of The World

Welcome to the news at five
A bridge collapse; none survive
Covid death rate set to soar
While in Yemen there’s a civil war

News just in; stop the presses
Meghan Markle changes dresses
Sets the twittersphere alight
Is it Ivory or Arctic White?
We’re still awaiting confirmation
We’ll monitor the situation

An earthquake just wiped out Japan
While a fashion show rocked Milan
We’re told that knee high boots are back
And this season the new black – is black
News flash, report just through
David Beckham has a new tattoo

Ebola strikes, this time Uganda
Thousands dead; let’s see a Panda
We’re crossing live to Melbourne Zoo
Big cats need their teeth checked too
It was tiger Hutan’s turn today
The dentist says he’s a-okay

Now we have a change of pace
Breaking news from outer space
The world will end tomorrow night
Collision with a meteorite
We’ll be crossing for a full report
But first the ads and then to sport

The news is not all bad however
Our last day should see perfect weather
A pleasant 28 degrees
A gentle afternoon sea breeze
So don’t forget to slip, slop, slap
Follow the apocalypse on our app
That’s all from us, we’re back at eight
Remember, total fire ban across the state
