Oh, Well - a perspective poem

Oh, Well
Greg Pincus

The world is still here!
Yet I'm still sensing doom
Cuz I lost my excuse -
Now I must clean my room.

Whether or not this is my last post of the year (which it might be, but not because of misinterpreted Mayan calendars), I wish you and yours a wonderful holiday season and happiness and health in 2013 and beyond!

It's Poetry Friday, and you can check out a Solstice-themed roundup over at My Juicy Little Universe.

Hi, Greg--

You always keep the kid's perspective at the forefront. My 13 yo was actually a little worried about the end of the world, so I think she was actually glad to clean her room when it turned out we didn't all get vaporized. I love your wake-up poem from the 16th: "answer dark with waves of light" is perfect. Jolly holidays to you and yours!
