WRITING PROMPT: “To Be Continued”

road signs that say "to be continued"
Brian Hogan

To be continued means we want your attention

The story’s not over, there’s a twist, did I mention

She has an evil twin from another dimension

To be continued means you tune in watch next week

Because she’s pregnant and kidnapped down by the creek

And her lover was a con artist, a regular sneak 

To be continued means somebody unexpected might die 

Someone beloved, or the suspense was a lie 

Because they want us asking ourselves “why oh why? 

To be continued means keep this channel on longer

And buy useless crap after these words from our sponsor 

Manipulating us using models covered in bronzer  

To be continued seems to always mean danger 

A major guest start playing a mysterious stranger 

There’s nothing worse than a shocking cliff-hanger 

To be continued could also mean I’m eternal 

I like that thought so I feel for my journal 

And try to capture the truth, even if just a kernel
