Governor Inslee’s Proclamation

The Emergency’s over

in Washington State.

Who’d a thunk at the start

we’d have such a long wait.

Who’d a thunk how our lives

would be altered and changed.

Who’d a thunk how our habits

would be re-arranged.

Who’d a thunk that a blessing

like safe vaccination

would tear us apart and

disrupt our great nation.

Who’d a thunk we’d be lonely…

missing family or friend.

Who’d a thunk of the sickness—

the lives at an end.

Who’d a thunk?

Mask Mandate Ends at Midnight

Our Guv says:  COVID’s handled.

So, at midnight, we’re unmasked.

The worst is now behind us

‘cause we’ve done as we were asked.

Six million dead around the world…

it’s been a long two years.

We’ve hid and isolated

and we’ve raged and shed some tears.

Most have worked together,

done our part, and we’ve complied.

While a few have shouted “Freedom!”

as their neighbors failed and died.
