It Was The Worst of Times?

By Mac Guerreiro There’s a silver lining here, Eye know it, Even if we don’t see it, Eye feel it, Things have had to change, They’ve been shifting for ages, This is the culmination, Rhyme and reason don’t vibe, And the fear of what this means for us consumes most, Yet to entertain said fear …
