AugPoWriMo 10

As if any of us need reminding
Everything that has been going on is
Still going on but with no end in sight
And no insight into where we have been
Which is still where we are both then and now
Not that the then we thought would be the now
Is any closer to the beginning
Of when this chapter will come to a close
And the work we knew we would have to do
Will somehow begin if that were the case
The progress we make will still be unmade
Erasures wait in line to be erased
If not can we sign a paper to say
This ends our problems they won’t go away
