Sorry, I tried to be up-beat. --- I did try. ... Just thoughts of today and towards the future.

In the weeks before Christmas

And all through the world

There was a Pandemic resurgent,

More deaths were unfurled.

And we in our dwellings

While watching the News

Were reminded each minute,

"This is the year for the Blues".


The man in the White House

Was cured and was safe

Full medical safeguards

Had saved that old waif

And all of his family

They were safe, too

Being monitored daily

By a medical crew.


There is war over here

And there's war over there.

Arms Makers need income

So what do they care?

And all of the while

We hear nary a good tiding

For Death's all around

Thus, many are hiding.


But I will have no fear

For tomorrow I know

That no matter which way

The four winds blow


Will be far less mean,

It's the beginning of the end

For Covid 19.


Then we can take back our lives.

Why? Just because!

Returning to normal

However maddening that was.

We can resume our hating

Bickering and lies,

Just doing what man does

Under our smog ridden skies.

Excellent, JE. I hope the optimism at the end turns out to be true.

Thanks Hul, and I suspect that it will. At least, that is what history shows after such events.
