A year lost in germ deflections…
And the Capitol with no firm protections,
I don’t mean to be vague,
This year we get plague:
COVID plus mid-term elections!
2021 was an unpleasant ride.
In a few hours we lay it aside
And say, with a curse,
It can’t get any worse
When we learn Betty White has just died.
Since Jeff Epstein was laid on morgue’s shelf
Ghislaine was left all by herself.
And now locked away
Hope we never will say
Ghislaine Maxwell did not kill herself.
The US has fifty million cases
Of COVID, and on that basis
Anyone is contagious
And the quiet courageous
Are the ones with the masks on their faces.
Gun owners and anti-maskers, you know,
Joined the effort to overturn Roe.
Though Conservatives fight
To keep personal rights,
This most personal right has to go!
Omicron: the Grecian ‘O’ letter.
This variant: another go-getter.
The odds from Las Vegas
Says we’ll pass the Omegas.
Apparently we do not know better.
Marjorie T Greene wrote a bill
To award a young man for his skill.
Has been to Trump’s house.
Republicans like children who kill.
Yesterday was Thanksgiving, we’re back
To the Friday the merchants call Black.
If the bum supply chain
Gives you anguish and pain
Then shopping won’t fill your lack.
The turkey, the berries from the bog,
The potatoes, the squash, and the grog.
And late in November
Let us pause to remember
First Americans, like the Wampanoag.
The Wampanoag, as often stated,
With Pilgrims, Thanksgiving celebrated.
But history is lying
To omit The Great Dying:
The Wampanoag were soon decimated
The annual American rite:
Giving thanks like the Pilgrims? Not quite.
History is elusive
But be all-inclusive,
And take the dark meat with the white.
This fight to stop Covid isn’t done.
Fact is we’ve just barely begun.
The death toll was plenty
In year 2020.
And surpassed in 2021.
