Two people are walking, both wearing face masks.
Can't wait for this stupid year to be over.
They come to a fallen-down tree.
I can. This year made the future scarier. So much of why 2020 was bad was because of the things it sent us into 2021 without.
Person 2 is now walking along the tree.
You gotta have hope, though.
You say that, but you also said all this awful stuff couldn't happen, and it did. You're as clueless as the rest of us.
Person 1 is now also walking along the tree.
Well, if we're wrong about which bad things can happen, it's gotta make us at least a little less sure about which good things can't.
Person 2 is jumping off the tree.
They're both walking along the ground again.
But we don't have a cool eclipse here to look forward to like in 2017. And it's not even prime, either.
Title text: I intended to make and post this back in March, but didn't get around to it then. Since then it seems to have become even more applicable. I hope what's going on right now actually works to make things better this time…
