A poem for the ages
Hide away from the contagious
This shit is outrageous
Do you even know what day it is?

Quarantine feels like a dream
Time passes by faster than it seems
Where is our ray of hope? Just one small gleam?

Will things go back to normal?
The dress code is far from formal
Even if you’re just pumping gas
Don’t forget to wear your mask
How long will this madness last?
