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
