The World Isn’t Fun Anymore

N1:  The one-percenters have done it. Isis has done it. Trump has done it. Uncycled re-cycles have done it. Water and air are polluted.  There’s fracking and Citizens United. And no one buys my books.

N2:  How could everything have gone rotten at once?

N1:   Yes, that’s my question.

N2:   Maybe it’s dark matter.

N1:   Please be serious.

N2:   How many people have you made miserable today with that question?

N1:   Hey, don’t blame me! I’m the one wondering!

N2:   And you expect me to answer your question?

N1:    Well…why not?

N2:    Well, because I’m having fun.

N1:    How can you!

N2:    How can I not?

N1:    Sigh.  You’re in denial.

N2:    Maybe, but I’m still having fun.

 

 

 

 

 

About Nan Mykel

At 79, I was just about to stop keeping a journal, but that felt like accepting that growth was finished. I don't want to be finished, yet! I'm 80 now, and struggling to communicate with you, if you'll come and set awhile. P.S. My how time flies! I'm 82 now.
