It’s over and done.

Stick a fork in it.


The election has come to pass.

The man is our president.

For four years.

And that’s all she wrote.

Onward into the unknown.

No matter who’s in charge.

Or who isn’t.

Who knows.

No one.

It’s anybody’s guess.

Or bet.

“You can fool all the people some of the time.

And some of the people all the time.

But you cannot fool all the people all the time.”

Spoken by another president.

Abraham Lincoln.

Nuf sed.

The election is over.

Everybody can exhale.

And carry on.

Just as the sun keeps rising.

Stars keep moving in the heavens.

The moon fills with fullness.

Air softens.

Then cools.

Autumn colors appear.

Holiday season approaches.

Mason Punchers keep winning.

November is most definitely here.

No matter who’s in power.

Or who’s got the most money.

Or who you know or don’t know.

November owes no one.

Pure and sound.

All 30 days of it.

A month like no other.

Weather changes.

Leaf color changes.

Clothing changes.

Put up the summer stuff.

On with Fall.

That’s Mason.
