The Leap of 2020

Woodman, spare that tree! Touch not a single bough. In youth it sheltered me, And I'll protect it now.............George Pope Morris (1802-64)
Spare 2020; It may have started tough but in the end it would speak good tidings.
From little Wuhan came the Covid19 Pandemic that has ravage over 1 million homes, destroyed businesses and transformed our working/social life to a new zoom normal of social distancing. From Trump White House comes the alternative truth protocols revolving staff turnover and the evangelical/republican delusional bias that establishes John Updike 1932 observation; "America is a vast conspiracy to make you happy" perhaps unhappy.
From Lekki Toll Gate comes a generation of youth protesting for a just cause, hugging the national flag, singing the national anthem then at twilight mudered by the national army
In 2020: One could say; the land has been so devasted, Another could weep; so much death Perhaps;at the end we could find solace in a vaccine, a reformed white house and a regenrated youth
