2021-What a Summer!


Brian Lee Clements


After a vacation with my dear friend I was hoping on a quiet summer for a change,

And I thought summer of 2020 was strange

When I got back from Tampa, I had laser surgery on my right eye.

And this time I didn’t even get a stye.

And then a week later I got my Shingles vaccine.

My arm swelled up and made quite the scene.

Then in mid-June, my wife and I filed together for divorce

As our relationship had always been coarse.

All was fine until I received my second Shingles vaccine

When my left eye swelled up and looked like it went through a fight scene.

August came around and was kind of quiet

Had a staycation where I  hung out by the pool and was pretty keen

Then September came around and all hell broke loose

When I tested positive for Covid and was mad as a wet goose

Well ten days off now which is par for the course

And on the final day of summer so was the divorce

I hope Fall comes brings for joy in my life

With cool days and no more strife

With a vacation coming in October

I hope the days will be slower

We’ll see what God has in store for me

I’m sure everything he does will be meant to be
