Waited and waited for the sun to set and for the “Christmas Star” to rise yesterday.
Marveled at it in appropriate child-like awe.
Readied my wish for the once-in-a-lifetime “star” –
OCD’ed over the whole thing.
Wish for world peace? The pandemic will continue.
Wish for world health? War.
Wish for world happiness? Some people’s ideas of ‘happiness’ are truly horrifying.
So, I copped out.
Asked for “guidance” and scurried back inside with tail firmly between legs.
I mean, who muffs up a wish?
No wonder the world hasn’t seen my tail in years.
