Beginning from the End

The weeks fly by and it’s been 6 months today
A tiny protein started the invisible war, the world to pay
There is much to be asked, a new normal here to stay
Living apart, social distanced away

The year 2020 was supposed to be grand
As we celebrate the 24th Congress of child psychiatry’s stand
Instead we must meet in virtual land
No chance to see Singapore’s sun, water, and sand

An unprecedented time, was the clarion call
No more travelling and having a ball
For the sake of the seniors who must not fall
We will fight infection, strong, sturdy, and tall

IACAPAP’s execs went online, plan the world anew
No chance of facing each other as meetings were few
After Dubai and Rio, where were we due?
Where to go in 26 was something to chew

The summer meeting moved, beginning December
The sharing of minds we will yet remember
 Rekindled with an evolution webinar
The theme, “Starting from the beginning”, beginning in winter
