A Poem: When 99% + 1% does not = 100% 

I am 99% sure that I will wake up tomorrow morning
I am 99% sure that tomorrow will actually come
I am 99% sure that I will eat something today
I am 99% sure that I will receive my paycheck this week
I am 99% sure that I will have a job tomorrow
I am not 99% sure how I will be when I retire
I am not 99% sure if I will have health insurance when I retire
I am not 99% sure how I will survive once I am old
Are you one of the 99% that are not sure of their future?
Are you one of the 99% who’s freedom of speech is not free?
Are you one of the 99% that is over taxed?
I am 100% sure I am not one of the 1%

    The newly opened WYLDE in Hudson is many things rolled into one: retail store, café, local hangout. France built WYLDE around a sense of community––a place where locals can come and stay awhile to work or to chat, even to build relationships. WYLDE has its own pop-up market on Warren Street, running bimonthly on Saturdays through October 30.
