...and good riddance.
I can't think of a single good thing that has come out of this nightmare of a year, filled with broken promises, bait-and-switch, gaslighting, deceit and outright lies that made hypocrisy look normal and virtuous by comparison. All this misery may yet give birth to something good in the days and months to come. Yet as the tally stands just minutes before midnight, there's none to be found in 2021.
Things could carry on as they have, and get worse. Normally, on New Year's Eve, we wish for it to be otherwise - and so I shall, now. For "oft evil will shall evil mar," as the old saying goes, and I do have faith that the almighty Lord will smile on us sinners sooner or later, if we but try to earn His grace.
