Goodbye to 2020
By Jhantu Randall
2020 will be one for the books —
Unrest gave us looks at so many half assed crooks.
It was the year of exposing the façade,
Arrogance of the people who thought their EGO was GOD.
E.G.O. stands for Easing God Out;
Not religious but even I saw that beyond a reasonable doubt.
This year the virus may not have gotten too close but the beast definitely got me
Working endlessly, American Zombie.
Cog in the machine
Still finding time to grind on my dreams…
But for what?
Cynical that 2021 will suddenly show love.
Never giving up
In fact beyond trying to start
How do I accumulate this money without selling a piece of my soul or tearing out my heart?
Now I lie in wake, sure to get my grasp
‘Cause this year showed me many of us will still be here after the collapse.
