New Year

Drape, Single, Mouthpiece, Protection

My wish for the new year

Is the happiness of those I hold near and dear

Times of late have brought spirits low

With lock downs and no place to go

Prices rose, and yet politicians scoffed

While maskless “heroes” hacked and coughed

So at this juncture of a new year

I pray we can leave behind our recent fears


Padre

Today’s prompt: Begin a poem with the line

My wish for the new year…
