2020

What a year we’ve been living

I sat back simply observing,

How this place I lived showed different sides

And how so much altered our lives,

Like how brexit caused hateful divides

All encouraged more by government lies,

Then came Covid-19

Now there was something new to see,

Like a leader hiding in a fridge

Then shaking hands of patients then catching Covid,

Then we learnt how unprepared our government was

And that some people, never mind a deadly virus, didn’t give a toss,

Trump said it was a Chinese flu

But when he cut the funding for those watching out for this,

Then who really knew?

It would lead to millions dying around the globe,

Yet it came from invading bats habitats, well again how did they know?

Well the truth is many have said leave nature alone

Now back in the center of the caring zone,

Key workers worked hard while others were told to stay home

Government said they’re amazing and urged people to clap,

But then froze our pay rises because they’re so full of crap,

And many people carried out acts of kindness

Our leader chose to lie to her highness,

We found out how strong we can really be

Come to realise people are more important than material things,

So this year has been tough but we’ve learnt quite a bit

That some people are so selfish even in the midst of a pandemic,

We’ve learnt government is useless and always blame the people,

But it’s good at generating hate and causing people to divide

And this is a year we laughed less and it made us cry,

We’ve learnt to feel compassion for the families and their live ones who died,

And looking to the new year I hope people realise we need a big change,

Because our society is now hateful and largely deranged,

We need to promote more love and light

And to live a more positive life,

We need to show more tolerance and kindness to one and all

And drive for unity and equality and to sound out a call,

To more comitted and caring people to run our government

Visionaries and dreamers to stand up front,

And help our country and this world take a big step forward,

And move into a green and caring future that we can all be proud of.
