The year is Twenty- Twenty,

many thought and said,

a year of plenty,

prosperity is a head.

Then a silent enemy,

a virus causing despair,

came on our airplanes,

polluting our air.

So many old folk,

in our old folk homes,

lay and died,

while they waited,

for proper supplies,

because they were caught,

yes, caught unaware

by foreign lack of facts

and some outright lies.

The governments,

opened up their treasuries,

closed everyone’s doors;

they locked millions inside,

only the essentials,

are allowed to move.

So take care, stay safe,

and pray that God,

the Creator of Good,

will purify our air!
