week 675 ~ the bittersweet morning arrives in grey

with 2 comments

the bittersweet morning arrives in grey
trailing a rain cloud on the horizon
we wake up in an uncertain autumn
a tilted world holds disaster away
with thumbtacks as hope slides to the edge say
what you will we can taste oblivion
in our cornflakes in our eggs overdone
in our coffee bitter and black today
we suit up to save the world though doubtful
of the tools we can employ we’re steadfast
armed with a belief that democracy
won’t fail on our watch chewing a mouthful
of all that’s gone wrong we mean to outlast
our misfortune from sea to shining sea

here together happily
we will close this old year down
joyful friends and family
here together happily
misfortune you plainly see
has left us nary a frown
here together happily
we will close this old year down

Happy 2016 to all you readers here as well!
