Spoiler Alert

A quickie poem that I wrote as I was watching the final few minutes of Arnie in "Total Recall" on TV.

Spoiler Alert

I thought I’d write a little pome
as I was sitting here at home
just watching good old Ronnie Cox
expiring on the telly box
as “Total Recall” nears its end
and Arnie’s starting to descend
to slide upon the Martian soil –
but  do I really want to spoil
the end for those that have not seen
this sci-fi film upon the screen?

Not really, so apologies
If I have spoilt your fun with these
few couplets; that was not my aim,
but really you should share the blame.
I’m sorry if your bubble’s burst:
You should have read the title first.
