amid all the world's howling

there's a sheen of peace in many hearts

as if things have gotten so bad

that a breakthrough has happened

and people have exhausted their capacity

for this world's tragedy

and trudging on as all of us do

the way we trudge will show whether

we've stood down to let maniacs drag only

themselves and their adherents down

into their own hells or we've stepped up out of

outworn mythologies to find each our own way

back to where the morning stars sing

we'll see when we see what next year brings....
