MIXED MESSAGES

Another day, another death in Afghanistan:
four for this week.
There the news continues to be bleak.
Even the PM doesn’t think we can win.
Is a further effort just an extension of the sin?
I set my clock forward
a harbinger of spring
but it’s snowing outside
as winter has its last fling.
Mixed messages.
