FebPoWriMo 16

Soon it will have been 
A year since the last normal
Thing we did happened

So then from now on
Everything we do will be
The second go round

It might as well be
Deja vu from here on out
Though things may have changed

We have not let go
Of future milestones delayed
By the principle

Of the not as yet
That we seem to live by now
The earth is frozen

Even in the parts
That do not heat their houses
The unexpected

Will keep turning up
And the numbers we tally
Will move up or down

Despite or because
Of the effort put into
Making tomorrow

Feel less like it did
When we were expecting it
All of a sudden

To change back to what we knew
