All the gnarly news

so many grim tales out there this week
it makes my face ache
I carry this frown
because I can not understand the people
on this planet, nor the youth in my own small town
who do not value the lives of others nor their own freedom.
Sadness, for the lives that are no longer,
Fear that this is just the tip of the iceberg
and that the downward spiral
is like a toilet bowl
hopefully flushing out the
detritus of our broken world.

I hope the folks downstream can handle it.

I heard you folks are roasting hotdogs without a grille out there- Hope you are safe from all those fires-

You're always in my prayers.
God help the flood victims-
