CELIA'S POEMS

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.
