Partying while people die

275,000 people dead

2,000 per day

14 million cases

 

The silence

From our dear leader

And congressional leaders

Says it all

 

the WH hosts

Christmas parties

As if the pandemic

Did not exist

 

The corona ghosts

Were not invited

But they haunt

Our parties

 

And our memories

If only our president

Realized

That this is not the time

 

For parties as usual

Not the time for mass rallies

It is time to mask up

Take charge

 

The virus will end

As the vaccine spreads

The pandemic will run

Its course

 

But how many people die

between now and then

It is up to us of us

 

 

Starting with our president

Our congress

And our new president

Doing the right thing
