SeptPoWriMo 22

Remembering where we were the last time 
they said the worst was behind us is not
an impossible task more like the worst
case scenario already having
come to pass with a more rueful laughter
why do they tempt fate with self fulfilling
headlines more likely to be proven wrong
with the next news cycle breaking a chain
surely we have not reached the debt ceiling
of deworming paste outpacing common
sense does anybody really believe
we are out of the woods overgrowing
us waiting for good news that never comes
there is still so much weeding to be done
