Not by Choice

Not by Choice ~~~~~ O, how strange, the quiet world around, Folks wearing masks as if going to a ball. A boring ball, same masks what’s found; Your date may leave in the evening’s pall. The gathering of the magpies and ravens Tweet testily over who controls the purse. I root for any giving small […]
