NAPOWRIMO April 8-12, 2017 Why All Bets Are Off (and my poetry is delayed)

Case in Point

Out of nowhere
the rug was pulled out from under us
even though it was
an accident waiting to happen
suddenly no time to
batten down the hatches
or call off the dogs.

we are dead in the water
and haven’t a prayer
against someone being
economical with the truth
with all their ducks in a row
beating us at our own game
and killing the geese who lay the golden eggs.
