Tragic story that took me 5 minutes to come up with mrgreen :

The end was near,
No hope,
No light out of the darkness,
The sun no longer rose or setted,
Nothing.................just pitch black cold days,
Until one a small corner,
A flame lite up on a candle out of nowhere,
This was a symbol of peace for millions,
Then a man yelled out, "THE DARK AGE HAS ENDED!"
People cheered and felt happy once again,
So then I took a deep breath, laughed and blew it out.
