Eden George, 10
2020 was supposed to be our year
It was the year guaranteed to make us all cheer
What’s this we hear?
Coronavirus- nothing to fear
Kobe’s death, what could be worse?
Throughout the world armies did disperse
Confirmed alien sightings, we’re not alone in this universe
Words of warning from my mother the nurse
Rumors of schools closing
Many of us are supposing
Masks, they are imposing
Still no mandate for enclosing
Now attending school with a click
What a trick
I really hope this is over quick
Birthday parties over Zoom
My grandma’s death I thought did loom
Prayers to avoid impending doom
I wonder will this all end soon
Today is the eleventh-twentieth day of Junetober
Man, when is this craziness going to be over?
I have way too much toilet paper; wait what, now I’m a hoarder?
Showing my passport just to cross the New York to New Jersey border
Fireworks light up the nighttime sky
I thought this was reserved for the 4th of July
Is this a celebration, or are we all about to die?
What, murder hornets - now I’m really gonna cry
If I go on another hike
This is the year I really learned to ride a bike
Thankfully, the beach I also do like
I’m hearing the teachers are about to strike
George Floyd and Breonna Taylor
Black Lives Matter, votes by mailer
It’s time to start thinking about the 2020 movie trailer
Worried about not going back to school and whether or not I’ll be a failure
Social distancing is still a thing
Halloween candy dangled on a string
I dressed up this year as a mask wearing King
To the virtual costume party, what should I bring?
I’m thankful for the essential workers
Doctors, nurses, and those who flip burgers
Supermarket cashiers and restaurant servers
First responders, teachers, and medical researchers
2021 will soon appear
Rest in peace to those no longer here
Vaccination very near
Extremely happy to close this year!
