There’s an Election Going On…

Someone Said There’s an Election Going Around
By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall
In much work there shall be abundance: but where there are many words, there is oftentimes want.
-Proverbs 14:23

This autumn morning I have a fence to mend
Fence. As in fence. Concrete footings, wooden planks
The rotten bits to be cut out and replaced
No metaphors will be harmed in this repair

Later I will harvest the last of the sunflowers
Drooping now in the fullness of life’s end
No longer following the sun, only the earth
Soon to be seeds for the winter squirrels and birds

Someone said there’s an election going around
Fine, fine, but the grapevines need pruning down

Daddy, What Were You Doing When the World Changed Forever?
By Lawrence “Mack in Texas” Hall

The world will change today – that is a cinch
Newspaper drama by the column inch
The vote count is over; we’ve come to the clinch

And I, in peace – I built a garden bench
