Hey, this is a new poem that Auntie Obvious wrote. I’m still trying to get her more space on my website, even though she has her own awesome website, where this will hopefully be posted, too.
[Auntie Obvious: Dude, that is so nice! I think I’m going to happy cry!!!]
Before Auntie Obvious starts crying, let’s go ahead and share the poem…
AN ODE TO 2020
Goodbye 2020 – with all its details
COVID-19 pushed the year off the rails
The TP was hung like a garland or lei,
(Just kidding, we keep it locked safely away);
Brady was nestled all snug in his bed;
While nightmares of Doom School danced in his head;
Most of the year was a big dumpster fire
But there WERE some things that we would rate higher
Before we all got stuck at home (BOOOOO)
Brady was in some plays and he went to Batuu
Then a puppy named “Leia” (but really, she’s Chewy)
Baby Yoda is awesome, Krait Dragon barf’s gooey
We learned Baby Yoda’s real name (Grogu)
“The Tragedy” was tragic (there were actually TWO).
Second Christmas and Real Christmas both brought much joy.
Both Grandmas were jealous of Brady’s new toy.
Two planets said “hi” (from six light years away)
Brady won the wishbone war on T-Day!
Brady got baptized, An RV vacation
And he put to good use his big imagination!
So we mustn’t forget as we list this year’s glories:
A website where Brady could post all his stories!
Feast Thief, Hoodie Man, Kind Little Truck
Don’t spill the Living Juice – it might bring bad luck!
Nartha and Power Monkey constantly sparred
LEGO Speed Builds turned out to be hard
Unboxings, audio books, Ghost Goats (oh my)
Want to go PodSailing? Please give it a try!
Brady picked an Admin to post his stories with care
An “Obvious” choice – see what I did there?
So what does Auntie Obvious wish for these days?
World Peace, an assistant, and a small pay raise
Aqua Dolphin shot lasers from Dadat’s pool
Auntie thinks cliffhangers are SO not cool
We’d give 2020 the worst of all grades
But the future’s so bright, we gotta wear shades
A vaccine is coming, which will change things a lot
(Can’t believe we’re excited to go get a shot)
Movies with popcorn and regular school
Birthday parties and restaurants, too.
As we throw 2020 under the bus
There’s great stuff coming from Disney Plus
We’re stoked to see Ahsoka again.
Will she find Ezra Bridger and meet Sabine Wren?
The Bad Batch and Rangers will be epic and bold
And Andor and Lando (will he be young or old?)
Boba and Fennec will lead lives of crime
Kenobi and Vader (flashback or real time?)
Acolyte will show history that came before
And A Droid Story (the one that you ARE looking for)
But before this can happen, we have something to ask
Stay six feet away and wear your mask!
We can’t wait until all of this great stuff is near
Good Riddance 2020 – don’t come back now, ya hear?
