Answer:  WORKFORCE

(Tons of fun, with a Star Wars pun!  There were no new clue words today, but all of the jumbles appear new, to me.  I always thought that a BEERKU was poetry you came up with at the bar.  The answer letter layout was pretty good.  I would have swapped “occur” for “unwed” though.  The cartoon is awesome.  We have a little R2D2 downstairs, along with one stormtrooper, riding what looks like a Segue.  And of course, the two Darths are masterful.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Bleeding red day

For those of you who are NOT at the shops and malls today, returning and exchanging, and scrounging for those after Christmas SALES . . . a little something to think about.

Perspectives on Life, the Universe and Everything

what should we box
wasted sweets in giant socks
uncountable gold, silver coins
shiny colourless rocks

billions saved from wasting lights
pieces of junk causing unthinkable fights
money spared of expensive hangings
unwanted gifts, lingerie, leggings

turkeys, sprouts all food wasted,
wine, liqueur, those drinks never tasted
having more and more, cleaning entire stores
of those things we’ve bought, unwittingly sought

a day of reckoning what could have been
a generous giving yesterday should have been
humanity matters possessions certainly not
what a wonderful bleary weak afterthought!

Universally applicable to second days of Eid, Diwali, Christmas and all other global retail festivals, so no discrimination in collective criticism…I wish I could act on this thought but I don’t so certainly don’t practice what I preach…

Answer:  HOLIDAZE

(They look stunned and amazed, to me.  No new clue words today.  But all of the jumbles seemed new to me.  That doesn’t mean they were difficult though.  The best jumble was the answer letter layout.  Nicely done, there.  The cartoon was . . . enlightening!  Hope you had a wonderful holiday, friends.  Be well and do good!)    —   YUR
