for god’s sake

the world turned
up-side down
didn’t come crashing around
feet
head stayed above the water line
swim with the current
for the task
un-masked is the same for all
disturbing
un-nerving
at times
stop
whining
just pour another
whether red or white
skip the rose
that’s a headache
in the making
it’s for the 1 who couldn’t decide
had to blend
for god’s sake
make a decision

if you wish
to shrink away
do so
for a day
then click the red heels
and find
reality need not be negative

for god’s sake
or for that matter
for mine
remember
strength survives
