Burying 2020

Burying 2020

A Poem by Gee
"

Good riddance

"
We'll gather by your open grave
as bells echo out loud,
no tears or flowers be offered up
to fall upon your shroud.
For you my friend will not be missed
your leaving will be cheered,
though your memory will linger on
in most minds ever seared.
But hope comes with your burying,
a light at tunnels end,
with smiles replacing misery
as the world begins to mend...

Happy New year folks :))

LOL gone but not forgotten:) The number of curse words that come into mind when reflecting on the year 2020 is staggering from the forest fires in Australia to the west coast of the united states all I could think of when I sat and attempted to write a little ditty was to burn the calendar so I did just that!

Happy new year
I think I will take my dog for a walk in that graveyard, and we can both visit that grave...I will let him
do his business on it.
thank God...2020 is in the rear view mirror now.

Happy New year to you and yours
Indeed, and it damn well better not reincarnate.

Thanks
“with smiles replacing misery

Great burial metaphor and message Gee. Lyrical, if appropriately ‘dirge-ish’, with classical language, deft symbolism and imagery. Lovely cadence and rhyme. Good riddance to 2020 and Happy New Year wished back to you and yours my friend!

Happy New year my friend and you are welcome.
Written in the second person I very much took it personally until I figured out what it was about. Nearly cried. Should have probably read the title first. I'll be up until midnight on New year's Eve just to make sure it happens.
The metaphor of burying the year is clever, one can only hope that baby New year isn't a brat. Maybe we should consider a late term abortion and just check that one in the dumpster, we'll start again at 2022.
That's kind of dark, well I can promise that I am in fact a creepy weirdo, I'm harmless, please don't block me.

You echo the sentiments of so many, i want to run and run until any thoughts of this last terrible year are left behind somewhere in oblivion.
Wishing you a wonderful New Year which will get more wonderful every day as we pick up the pieces and learn to breathe freely again :)
