SeptPoWriMo 25

How long until things get back to normal 
turns out it has been normal all along
whenever two or more of you gather
no one goes through this alone together
the world as we know it might not be here
in this most confusing phase of this phase
problem is the problem can’t be defined
too much evidence to the contrary
the two exit lanes are closed to traffic
because there is too much traffic around
gridlock is all there is to sustain us
the bill won’t be passed because of reasons
if food be music we have been starving
the world is burning while it goes dancing
