Halloween is 47 Days Away
The air is still full of smoke
My well off friends and relatives
who sit in their back yards on padded lawn chairs and take pictures of the golden
sunsets and happy birds singing from the trees
are proud of themselves
they are standing strong against
the poisoned winds that are pounding against everyone else’s door
The rest of us can see
the locks and seals around our windows and doors are failing.
The birds are not singing, those are sirens from miles away and the golden sunset is not
The sky is on fire.
Yada Yada Yada.
Think happy thoughts and good things will come your way.
Just be a team player, grab those bootstraps and lift
and you too shall see the clear blue, germ free skies again.
