A Litany

If we were lucky enough
lucky enough in the pandemic
in the pandemic we survived
we survived quite comfortably
quite comfortably we were full of angst
we were full of angst and counted
and counted our blessings
our blessings were many and great
many and great we acknowledge
we acknowledge and yet we fear
we fear for the future
over which we have no
control and let us say
(fill in the blank)

One thought on “A Litany

  1. This is remarkable Sheila. It very much captures a feeling I had over and over again this past year +, particularly in this line “quite comfortably we were full of angst”.

    The last line works so well too, to send the whole thing off into a questionable, worry filled future.
