With 2020, one of the most tumultuous years really historic
So many still struggling, shall we still be optimistic?
Our gratitude goes to the front liners of the community.
The real heroes of 2020, the health workers worked with assiduity
To save the pandemic patients. In Australia the fire fighters
And in U.S, they displayed their feats as the fire battlers.
While the corona virus the headlines dominated
The Black Lives Matter sparked by the shocking death
Of George Flyod swept the globe. The rising Iran -US tensions,
The deadly explosion that rocked Beirut’s port and in Mauritius
The Wakasio shipwreck, so many other disasters, all added fuel to fire.
Quarantine failings of the global rollercoaster year
Led to severe lockdown life, followed by historic job losses,
And the world started working from home with more reliance
On technology, with more video conferencing for work, education
And socializing. Fortunately, at least the emissions NO2
Dropped down along with the serious movement restriction.
Today we are grieved to hear of 1,812, 188 loss of human lives
From Corona virus. Now vaccinations are rolling out fast.
With the advent of the spread of ‘Novel coronavirus’
We do not know whether to be or not to be optimistic
For year 2021. Probably if we start respecting our environment
If we decide to live healthy lives, be more prudent
Wear masks to avoid the harrowing loss of human lives, if we are ready
To birth a new ‘me’ with right attitude, right approach, being steady
Then we can expect to see the new year 2021 gradually
Recovering from trauma of the year 2020.
We simply hope the new vaccine will save precious lives.
To turn over a new leaf in 2021, let there be the urgent drive
Now, otherwise, to the tune of the pandemic we shall jive.
