A FRIEND WROTE THIS

Published December 5, 2020 by Nan Mykel

Living in the Twilight Zone

Today’s word is Fear.

Fear the surge continues

Fear the sea will surrender

Fear the plastics will proliferate

Fear the fire and the droughts

Fear the virus and bacteria

Fear the ignorance of the masses

Fear the power of the status quo

Tomorrow’s word is Hope.

Hope the nets will loosen their grip on the drowning 

Hope the glaciers will recover their water

Hope the women claim the high ground

Hope the politicians hear the prayers

Hope the evicted find refuge

Hope the jobless find activity

Hope the hungry find sustenance

Hope the cold find warmth

Hope the lost find home

Hope the deaf find melody

Hope the bereaved find understanding

Hope the injured find justice

Hope the murdered find paradise

Next week’s word is Unknown.

All bets are off. Suspense rules.

Stay tuned as the situation develops
