THIS WEEK’S WORDS come from “Peering Up From Mud” by Margarita Engle: frogs, beauty, pretend, stars, moonlight, pass, sing, flashing, see, taste, clear, air

We pretend that we see the same
It will pass and no one to blame
See the beauty of the moonlight
The stars and everything is alright
Somewhere the frogs singing your name

To clear the air, it is all a shame
All these years and what we became
Places we have been and all the fight
We pretend that we see

We win or lose and that is the game
The taste of all the flashing fame
The Angry Beaver and our plight
Things happened, we are truly contrite
Who was responsible, we disclaim
We pretend that we see*
