Truth Dare Kiss or Promise

Oct 3 good news bad news

which

ding dong the witch is dead

or instead

a fraidy-cat

plays possum

or really really slick

ventilator

manipulator

crypto traitor

critical list

breath

of Hope

high

the game is skewed

all bets are off

and fingers crossed

that goodness

brains and sanity

prevail

before the world

abseils

into the

abyss.
