A Thanksgiving to Remember

The year COVID came to dinner

Pass the yams and pass the turkey.
Pass the iPad if you will.
I want to Facetime with my fam-i-ly.
Though quarantined from loved ones,
I am grateful we’re not sick
and I’m thanking God we have technology.

This Thanksgiving I am thankful
for the protocols in place
that are helping curb the COVID’s appetite.
For this guest no one invited
has devoured happy times
and has set its sights on big and little bites.

I am hoping this rude houseguest
gets the message and departs.
It’s wreaked havoc and much heartache heretofore.
COVID has no right to be here.
God in Heaven, please take charge.
Would you kindly show this enemy the door?
