Counting on this Year

by Kristina Woodhill

Imagine the look
on the face of the miscreants
bent on bending our mirrors
leading us into idea mazes
where word juggling clowns
keep us topsy turvy,
far from the Big Tent

just realizing at the stroke of midnight
we'll all be seeing 2020
for the next 366

"bent on bending our mirrors" - what a phrase! Lots of meaning in it. How many of these miscreants shall we encounter in those 366 days. On the other hand, there might be some value in bending the mirror in that it will help me discover something new about me. Thanks for this enlightened entry into 2020, Kristina.

A subtle reference to American politics for the coming (leap) year? Happy New Year Kris to you and your family. May the best man or woman win.
