An old proverb updated


I was always bought up that when the sky dawned red to say the old proverb,

Red sky at night, shepherds delight,

Red sky in morning, shepherds’ warning.

The origins of this saying can be found here. But as usual my brain went into overdrive and came up with an updated version of the proverb which I feel reflects the world we live in better.

Red sky at night , nuclear fright !

Red sky in the morning, fallout warning.

or

Red sky at night, shepherds delight,

Red sky in the morning, shepherd on fire !
