New Years' Eve Is For The Bourgeoisie

Is 2021 the year the world changes for the better?  

Does the changing of a digit make the world suddenly wake up and do the right thing?  

Why do we pretend to celebrate the passing of one year to the other as a time of change, or resolve?  

Do we need a reason to make a change in our lives, does the changing of a year, give us that reason?  And if so, why? 

On December 31, 2020, thousands of people couldn't breathe, and some took their last breath.  

There were millions of people working so we can stay safe and our loved ones can have the care they need.  

While others were on social media posting stuck at home with family, oh well there's always next year.  And trying to play happy, look at us, we're in this together, in our warm safe home. 

It was hard for me to swallow the fact that so many people are suffering and so many people don't care.  

Celebrating New Years' Eve seems so wrong this year, and although I never pull the class card, very bourgeois.

I would understand celebrating the vaccine, or a new president, or a stimulus package. But a New YEAR with empty streets, and closed businesses..., I don't think so. 

This New Years' eve was an excuse to have a party, not a reason...n'est pas?
