The Game Remains the Same

It has been a year
of death.
It has been a year
of creation.
This is how
the world
seems to spin.
It has been a year
of treachery.
It has been a year
of goodwill.
There have always been,
there are,
and there shall always be
two basic forces
at work in the world –
chaos and order, good and evil,
Right and wrong, positive and negative,
ugly and beautiful, dark and light –
call them what you will.
A few
fireworks celebrations
exploding in the night sky
and one more completed
cycle around the sun
aren’t going to change
the foundational energies
upon which nature resides.
A little bit of this
and a little bit of that –
happy 2015.
Now let’s have a drink
and then get sober.
