Not one to let a day go by without putting pen to paper (or fingers to keyboards), here is an attempt at putting Covid-19 in perspective from my point of view.
Ode to Covid-19
It’s been nearly ten weeks now
Since I’ve been out the door
to visit all the places
I frequently explored.
My mind is playing tricks on me
I thought today was Sunday
and went online to church today
but it’s already Monday.
I’ve been told to “Stay at home!”
’cause I’m considered old
which wasn’t what I thought I was
until Corona Virus took its hold.
“Stay home and social distance
if someone comes your way,
and don’t forget to wash your hands
several times a day!”
My hands are very chapped and dry
from all that soap and water;
to add excitement to my life
I bought a teeter-totter.
The problem is there’s no one here
to weight the other end;
in order to get up again
Which brings me to the closure
of this rambling bit of verse;
I hope my mind can stay the course
