Let's play pretend!

Let’s not talk about the haze. Let’s play pretend instead.

Pretend my eyes don’t smart, the air is clean, and my throat’s not scratchy. Pretend the sky is clear, its colour so blue, and the clouds are white. Pretend that it will be better, much better tomorrow.

Heck, while we’re at it, pretend the whole world is at peace, no war, no famine, no poverty, No prejudice, no stereotype, no racism, no injustice.

Alas, playing pretend is tiring….
