November 2, 2016, Prescott-
Today, I was to report to jury duty- until I wasn’t.
I went by HR and dutifully reported that fact,
and took the day as a religious Holy Day,
which it was.
Baha’u’llah’s birth was commemorated,
having occurred on this day, 199 years ago.
As it’s marked, according to the Lunar Calendar,
next year’s bicentenary will fall in mid-October.
What the nation needs, in this time of turmoil,
is a champion.
So, as rain falls in Cleveland, and the two best teams
in baseball are tied, at the end of the 9th inning,
the nation will wait for its champion.
There are no champions visible,
in the political realm,
but who’s keeping tabs on that?
Kirk Douglas, God willing,
will turn 100, soon.
I wish him the best.
Now, I look forward
to two hard-worked days,
and a refreshing drum circle,
to end this long week.
