While the future is always in the mystery
Category, a year ago there
We’re greater odds that a view of recent history
Could provide a reliable map to stare
At as one move forward to a desired
Outcome like traveling to Norway,
Or if you’re an actor like me, getting hired
To tell stories to a theater full of play-
Loving listeners. I know philosophically
That we never know what tomorrow holds,
But before all these catastrophically
Blunt lessons, we ventured how it unfolds
It also frustrates me that the future is not real.
‘Cause something to look forward to– that’s the deal.
