Twas the night before Christmas, when all through the house,
Everyone was in quarantine, even the mouse;
The masks were all hung by the door with care,
Knowing when we go out, we all must wear;
The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
While visions of school (yes actual school) danced in their heads;
And mamma in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
Had about all we could take of this COVID crap;
When a beep from my iPhone notified me of an alert,
I prayed the message was not going to hurt;
And what to my blood shot eyes did appear,
But a message from Dr. Fauci, its importance was clear;
Listen to the science, stay home, and do not mingle;
The death rate we want to bring down to the singles;
It’s not easy, it’s hard missing family and friends,
We all wonder when it’s coming to an end;
Now Pfizer, now Amgen, now Inovio and J&J!
On Moderna, on Novavak, on Roche and GSK!
A vaccine is coming, it’s on its way,
FDA will approve it in a matter of days;
This holiday season stay close to home,
There is no reason to wander and roam;
We do the right thing, we do it for each other,
For all of our mothers, fathers, sisters and brothers;
Keep doing what you are doing, keep up the good fight,
Before long we will see the ending in sight;
2020 has been a year we will all remember,
It will soon be over, it’s already December;
Love, family, friends, laughter and good cheer,
That is my wish for all of you in the upcoming year!
