No Such a Pandemic to Spoil My Christmas: A Poem

Val enjoys writing his own style of what resembles poetry, just hoping to catch someone's heart on the same page.


Christmas is coming with all of its cheer

life is good because we're making it so

without ruining immunity with silly fear

or frantic wishing for pandemic to go.

No one ever dictates how I feel

and this virus hype is no exception

I'm not viewing pandemic as a big deal

like anything in life, it's matter of perception.

Well, corona can kiss my eloquent ass

I don't get intimidated by a silly bug

not praying for pandemic to pass

or for some world-saving drug.

In the name of my ex-addiction

it shouldn't be called by a fine beer

and I don't share the world's conviction

about treating the bug with respect, even fear.

It's time for a menu with no stew and noodles

but different dishes to match Christmas mood

like turkey and ham, and poppy-seed strudels

and so much more that is tasting extra - good.

So this Christmas is bound to be the same

I've rehearsed this joy throughout the year

and I'll keep saying it without any shame

no virus can spoil my Christmas cheer.
