An ode to 2020

Twenty twenty

A year unlike no other

That’s what people say

Historians wink and nod

They’ve got stories for another day

Twenty twenty

Those many days at home

We certainly will remember

Zooming in our comfy clothes

From March until December

Twenty twenty

The sports that weren’t played

The theatre going pitch black

Concerts that were silenced

Entertainment, we did lack

Twenty twenty

A Minnesota man was murdered

Causing protests near and far

America’s racial problem

Such a painful visible scar

Twenty twenty

Murder hornets made the news

But they seemed mighty small

Compared to a virus

That sought to infect us all

Twenty twenty

China crushed Hong Kong

And freedom took a slap

While some evil men in America

Planned a governor’s kidnap

Twenty twenty

Harry and Meghan said tata

To all that royal stuff

Americans bid farewell to RBG

That lady, she was tough

Twenty twenty

Boris got Brexit done

Donald lost an election

But still don’t know how many men

Epstein helped get an…

What a year!

Sports fans! A poll for you.
