One More Week to Go - We can DO This!

Just in case everyone else is close to running out of steam like me, this reminded me that we can do one more week with cheer. I just hope the Boxing day sales are not really bigger than Christmas or I'm done. I need at least a week's break just to look at some empty parcel shelves for a change.

T'was a week before Christmas, And all through the town,

People wore masks, That covered their frown.

The frown had begun Way back in the Spring,

When a global pandemic Changed everything.

They called it corona, But unlike the beer,

It didn’t bring good times, It didn’t bring cheer.

Airplanes were grounded, Travel was banned.

Borders were closed Across air, sea and land.

As the world entered lockdown To flatten the curve,

The economy halted, And folks lost their nerve.

From March to July We rode the first wave,

People stayed home, They tried to behave.

When summer emerged The lockdown was lifted.

But away from caution, Many folks drifted.

Now it’s December And cases are spiking,

Wave two has arrived, Much to our disliking.

It’s true that this year Has had sadness a plenty,

We’ll never forget The year 2020.

And just ‘round the corner - The holiday season,

But why be merry? Is there even one reason?

To decorate the house And put up the tree,

Who will see it, No one but me.

But outside my window The rain gently falls,

And I think to myself, Let’s deck the halls!

So, I gather the ribbon, The garland and bows,

As I play those old carols, My happiness grows.

Christmas is not cancelled And neither is hope.

If we lean on each other, I know we can cope. 

Merry Christmas One and All, Lets Keep it going till we get to the end.

Thank you to the internet creator of this, there was no name on the original post, but it is certainly on topic.

A very Merry Christmas to everyone in LPOG land from this exhausted elf. It has been the most interesting and challenging year in this business. Enjoy your days off, and get rejuvenated for 2021. If we made it this far, we can keep on going. Merry Christmas!
