Christmas 2020. It’s all about the loved ones

Christmas 2020. It’s all about the loved ones

by Annie McCrae

but what about the sick ones
the bullied ones
the just about surviving ones
the unemployed ones
the struggling ones
the can’t cope any longer ones?

And what about the lonely ones
the grieving ones
the drowning ones
the exploited ones
the abused ones
the trapped can’t leave ones?

What about the homeless ones
the left out ones
the voiceless ones
the ignored ones
the selfless ones
not in it for themselves ones?

And what about the honest ones
the starving ones
the care home ones
the stranded ones
the shielding ones
the not a Tory crony ones?

The dead ones
the unloved ones
What about them?
