The reality we live in.
For those who don't know what a Blitz Poem is, please read below poem.

Terror strikes
Terror in the world
World of war
World of death
Death increases
Death of cultures
Cultures cleansed
Cultures clashing
Clashing with evil
Clashing with good
Good can win
Good brings peace
Peace is sought
Peace is fought
Fought ideology
Fought endlessly
Endlessly waiting
Endlessly hoping
Hoping hunger ends
Hoping for sanity
Sanity is hidden
Sanity is scarce
Scarce resources
Scarce leaders
Leaders collude
Leaders manipulate
Manipulate the young
Manipulate their minds
Minds of power
Minds of geniuses
Geniuses create
Geniuses destroy
Destroy the climate
Destroy species
Species endangered
Species extinct
Extinct ideas
Extinct rights
Rights of the person
Rights of the oppressed
Oppressed rise up
Oppressed overcomes
Overcomes greed
Overcomes fear
Fear is dangerous
Fear needs horror
Horror consumes the world
Horror needs to stop


From the Author:

This form of poetry is a stream of short phrases and images with repetition and rapid flow.

Begin with one short phrase, it can be a cliché. Begin the next line with another phrase that begins with the same first word as line 1. The first 48 lines should be short, but at least two words.

The third and fourth lines are phrases that begin with the last word of the 2nd phrase, the 5th and 6th lines begin with the last word of the 4th line, and so on, continuing, with each subsequent pair beginning with the last word of the line above them, which establishes a pattern of repetition.

Continue for 48 total lines with this pattern, And then the last two lines repeat the last word of line 48, then the last word of line 47.

The title must be only three words, with some sort of preposition or conjunction joining the first word from the third line to the first word from the 47th line, in that order.

There should be no punctuation. When reading a BLITZ, it is read very quickly, pausing only to breathe.
