April 2020

Earth “stay home” inage

April’s thirty days

Filled with uncertainty

Are history


Goodbye April 2020. You can claim you were the first full month of the pandemic.

Goodbye Thanksgiving

In the news today I see
Christmas Sales have begun
That’s what retailers are promoting
Now that Halloween is done
No more waiting for Black Friday
Stores are open Thanksgiving Day
Cyber Monday is no more
Shoppers need more time they say
So forget about Thanksgiving
That Holiday is obsolete
Consumers need extra time to shop
Not give thanks, stay home, and eat.
