100WW — Tomorrow

img_1671In these days of Donald Trump, I feel like I’m stuck in a day that’s gray and lonely. But despite the shitstorm that seems to be swirling all around me, I try to remain optimistic. Yes, I’d bet my bottom dollar that tomorrow there will be sun.

No doubt that when I think about when the sun rises tomorrow over the eastern horizon, it will clear away the cobwebs and, as to my sorrows, there will be none. So I just gotta hang on until tomorrow, come what may.

Shit! Who am I kidding? We’re all fucking doomed!

(96 words)


Written for today’s 100 Word Wednesday prompt from Bikurgurl. Kudos to lyrisicst Martin Charnin for the words to the song “Tomorrow” from the musical Annie, whose lyrics I borrowed a little for this post.

    You are right, you just have to hang in there. We can’t let ourselves be doomed.

    Okay, I was waiting for Annie and Daddy Warbucks to burst into the story singing after reading “day that’s gray and lonely”…where’s Roosevelt when we need him?

      He’s rounding up Japanese-Americans and sending them to internment camps and refusing to let Jewish refugees fleeing Nazi Germany from entering the United States. Sigh!

        True, but we did get the WPA and the New Deal. We need a WPA for today. Get people to work…train them…then they can leave survival mode and get on with living.

            Too bad we won’t be able to say that about this one. Justice Kennedy just resigned from the Supreme Court, which means conservative Republicans can own the judicial branch now.

              Yeah, I just saw that. Very bad news. The Dems should do to Trump’s nominee what McConnell did to Obama’s last nominee.

              They will push any nomination through before midterms this year. There are not enough votes to hold it back.

    This will pass, one way or another. My feeling is that more New Yorks are coming. Young peeps will not tolerate the old greedy guard of either party and they will demand something else. Hopefully it will be via voting and not force.

    Fingers crossed on one hand and a ticket to Canada in the other.

    Ultimately, we ARE all doomed. But, in the meantime, there will be sunny days and happy times, too. I have a headache and for once, it’s not political … it’s just another attempt to try to make order where the world otherwise feels chaotic. It’s the old “Pushyoupullme” as reality does its thing and we try to do ours. Balance. We try for balance.

      Anthony Kennedy just announced his retirement from SCOTUS. So much for the sun coming out tomorrow.
