Santa, dear, are you  

ready for Christmas, as  

it will be different from last year?  


You may not recognize a  

lot of us, as we will be  

wearing a mask from ear 

 to ear. 


Things are changing so often 

it seems 

What has happened to all 

our dreams? 


Well, we can hope and pray this 

virus will soon go away 

so next Christmas will be 

like it used to be 

and will be happier for  

all and you and me. 

Merry Christmas
