November 7, 2018, Prescott-
For the first time, in a good many years,
I’m in a state some would call “broke”.
I have what I need, though,
and things will take an upturn,
For the first time, in a good long while,
people came at me,
claiming to represent a friend,
saying they had the solution
to all that ails me.
I reported them to the authorities,
and let the real friend know,
what was happening,
in her name.
Things will take an upturn,
There is no such thing,
as a quick fix,
or a free lunch.
Yet, as Baha’u’llah wrote,
“The fowls of the air,
and the beasts of the field,
receive their meat each day from Thee.”
as some cheer,
and others mourn, last night’s election,
I feel certitude,
that things will be made aright,
