The watchers

against their beliefs a blue spot came slowly
Out of the green

Nobody expected such a thing to occur
On a thursday

The watchers switched over from their electronic
Eye to their notes

The evidence undeniably placed thursday as the day
Of the pink circle

They recorded having seen another pink circle
In a strange light

Which had (explainably) created the illusion of
Being a blue spot

(blue from green on a thursday meaning disaster)
No one need panic

To ease minds they laid a complaint against the probity
Of the machine

The next thursday the pink circle again appeared
To be a blue spot

The watchers congratulated themselves upon the circle’s
Sense of humour

And on the next thursday the earth came out in a
Rash of blue spots

The watchers (finding themselves sitting on one) were
The first to die
