and now, 1866

 

And now, 1866

MDCCCLXVI


     I was 100 years away

no full moon in February

     promises made, promises broken

Civil Rights Act passed and vetoed 

     Covid numbers rise: a dark world 

total lunar eclipse 


     Fitz and Boo oblivious 

ASPCA founded, NYC


     Christmas shopping mostly done 

Nickel replaces the half-dime

     one count rises, another falls


Metric Act standardizes measurement

     even Christmas spirit wears a mask

dynamite invented in Germany
