No 267 December 09
To hear the vaccines on itís way.
We could really get excited.
To think things are looking up,
And we may be united.
But being over 80,
I may be due a sample.
Then you will know how Iíve gone on,
And use me as an example.
Well youíve sampled all my poetry,
And my baking you are trying,
I might as well be a guinea pig,
For this vaccine theyíre supplying
At last weíve got some good news,
Christmas it may help along,
Without the usual festivities,
Everything seems wrong.
So when we get a new year,
And no poems come every day,
The vaccine will have worked for me,
And Iíll have flown away.
I donít want you to get confused,
When I say Iíve flown away,
I donít mean up to heaven,
Itís Marco, Hip Hip Hip Hooray.
