A Big Ask

Adapted from Cabana Boy Q’s 2021 X-mas Song

Tasked
To be masked
And get vaxxed.

Patience tested,
Feeling stressed
To avoid areas congested.

What a pain,
But a shame
To complain.

For this one day
Best to pray
With only good things to say.

The end of year
Is near,
So with a big cheer –

Merry Christmas to all,
Have a grand ball!

Spread the Thanks

Plates, silverware, and glassware shining bright,
Table all set, but no one to invite
To prevent a Covid-19 super spreader event,
Though feeling much discontent.

No great expectations this year;
Just a simple meal and tall glass of beer.
Side benefits to self-imposed quarantining —
Not doing massive cooking and cleaning.

Though most grateful to have technology
To spread my wishes and apology:
Sorry to say from miles away,
Have a Happy Thanksgiving Day!
