The Year That Wasn’t ©
2020, not quite what we expected.
Conspiracy theorists soon rejected
laws enacted to keep us all protected
while parents and elders all felt neglected.
Despite all of this, people still struggled on,
before entering stores, their face mask they’d don,
front line workers so tired they can’t even yawn,
all tirelessly working from dusk to dawn.
At long last, the long tunnel shows some faint light,
treatments and vaccines arrive aiding the fight.
Are we now nearing the end of our long plight,
not quite over yet, but out future is bright.
Happy New Year to all my readers and their families. May we hear a few different more hopeful words in 2020.
