The Countdown

A clean slate, a fresh start, a do-over.

The ends to some beginnings and beginnings to some ends.

You hope the elephant forgets,

You wish for the owl’s wisdom.

Is it fair to ask for forgiveness instead of permission,

Or is it akin to turning on your hazard lights at a busy intersection, 

Hoping to be absolved of all sins?
