Every day that goes by with
most of the world still
in one piece is a good day.
It isn’t perfect.
There are wars going on, refugees
looking for a safe place to be,
and some that stay behind
because they have no other choice.
Terrorists lurking in our midst
looking to do harm.
People killing one another over this
or some other, you name it—
fill in the blank with the reason why,
there are many.
Natural disasters and shit happening.
Elections for world leaders
who may or may not be
good for their country—societies divided
My way or the highway rhetoric.
Talking points to a future of more of the same
shit, different administration.
There are always dictators out there
doing their own thing. There’s always that guy who likes to
thumb his nose at the rest of the world, making threats.
Today, sunny and warm with a chance of the world ending.
