A Room of My Own: Ring out the "old year" of the pig, ring in the "new year" of the rat

doomsday clock
moved to one hundred seconds
to midnight
I hear the sharp snap
of a rattrap

in the dying hour
of an old year
I feel like a rat
caught between illusion
and biting reality

FYI: "The Doomsday Clock was moved the closest it's ever been to midnight on Jan. 23 as atomic scientists warned of increasing threats around nuclear war and climate change..."
