Here are our word choices today…………… tough or what?
Withershins– in a direction contrary to the natural one, especially contrary to the apparent course of the sun or counterclockwise: considered as unlucky or causing disaster.
Brouhaha– excited public interest, discussion, or the like, as the clamor attending some sensational event; hullabaloo: an episode involving excitement, confusion, turmoil, etc., especially a broil over a minor or ridiculous cause:
The engine of life falters,
Scurry away and hide in fear and solitude.
This is no competition
To reach a ceiling of statistics:
The withershins are scary,
A brouhaha results of conflicting messages
To placate the tentacle of greed
To feather one’s nest.
Shoes once shiny and gleaming,
Now dull and worn,
Like the eyes and faces of those left:
Yesterday life was simple,
Tea on the lawn and picnics,
Love, laughter and merriment.
Today it is full of grief.
