Did You Know

daisiesnfld: Did You Know?
.
The news on every channel
And the words that we all dread
"The count of cases rising"
And the number of the dead
.
Yet seats were filled on air planes
Vehicles set out to drive
And cast aside the warnings
Some would not return alive
.
That holiday just once a year
Seems harmless to those
Who took no responsibility
For repercussions they imposed
.
When work was done it felt like fun
To have a drink or two
With no regard to mingling
Or how it might affect you
.
Still the cases mounted
The ICU beds now full
And shoppers and bar hoppers
Couldn't even be more cruel
.
And then came news of a vaccine
That would allow us all a chance
But others vetoed that idea
United firm in stance
.
The mourning of lost families
Who chose to dine among the crowds
Wailed loud and never ceasing
When their dead were wrapped in shrouds
.
Now waiting patiently house bound
The old, the frail, the failing
Watched through glass the gathering mass
While praying for a blessing
.
The warnings and the prophecies
Of more than two thousand years ago
Sprang to minds among the chaos
Of unbelievers failing to know
.
