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


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
