I don’t care where you have been or even what you have done
You are looking quite clearly forward to the year of 2021.
After Elections, COVID, Dr. Fauci, and minimum wage stimulus checks
I can speak personally for many of who are Nervous Nellie wrecks.
2020 seems like the place where reality died, and surrealism was born

Like a repeating Bell Curve the COVID numbers dipped and then surged

Time will tell if Tutti Fruitti Rudy will prevail; with a decent dye job for his hairpiece.

His briefs stuffed with dye-stained lawsuits; the M.C. Hammer of lawyers is too legit to quit.

In a world full of stress, and worries, and people all gruff and surly

Trump hasn’t really changed from before a congested election at hand
Exchanging one bunker for another every day trying to play out of the sand.
Crazy Uncle Joe, President elect, seems to be laying low and sublime
As one might except of him at this juncture — kind of just biden’ his time.
The stock market awaits every new news story with numbers well in hand
With tomorrow’s numbers another bull market or more resemble Custer’s Last Stand.

In the COVID and Federal budget bill, pork was stirred in the political pudding which muddies
While poor Pakistan anxiously is awaiting well-deserved funding for nationwide gender studies.
I don’t want to spoil your New Year’s Eve optimism, as it’s good to dispel and to purge
But in two weeks Dr. Fauci predicts us to be enduring the Christmas COVID surge.
So, order new masks; the designer ones preferred and color coordinate your fashion
Be the well-dressed COVID Warrior; a spitting mirror image, dressing for passion.
Stock up on Clorox wipes, spray cleaners, wet naps; on all your cleansers, and clean
For what we thought were the worst of times might have been just the time in between.
I saw Father Time last week looking old, frazzled, exhausted based on 2020 and its merit
