Let’s Pretend

Let’s pretend
nothing is wrong
our bills are paid
the market’s strong
the barn is full
the wheat is up
the kids are healthy
and wonderful
the corn is tall
there is no lead
in the paint on our walls
there’s a pair
of beach chairs
sitting on that faraway shore
waiting for us
on this day
let’s pretend
it’s not today
we’re not here
they’re not there
let’s pretend
we’re not going
anywhere

editors note:

Turn your pretense into peace. – mh clay
