Still not sure if
it feels right to
participate in what
some might construe
to be a frivolous
endeavor while
people are dying
at the rate of an eight
year long police action
every thirty one days
no wonder so many
are spending a few
minutes each day
determined to spell
a five letter word
knowing it is all
they will have to solve
in their lives for
the next twenty four
hours at least
