CHANT OF PANDEMIC DAYS

You can pocket space like gold coins

Hear the silence drop in your pockets and jingle

For the street are bare of crowds

The streets are bare of noisy jostle

The streets are bare of grackles on the side walk

The doors to the bars are shut, closed, bolted

The doors to the clothes shops are are shut, closed, bolted

The doors to the schools are shut, closed, bolted

The housewives prefer to hide

The children prefer to hide

The rains still fall

The clouds still puff out

The morning birds still sing

The Covid 19 virus was happier yesterday

The Covid 19 virus came out to play

The Covid 19 virus morphs and morphs

Still the humans hide away making

Masks

Vaccines

Videos

Music

Protocols

You can pocket space like gold coins

Hear the silence drop in your pockets and jingle

Jingle for health

Jingle for another day dawning

Jingle for a battle, Covid 19 the war is on!

  1. Oh, I think our battle with the virus is still going on... and will for a while. But we live with our new normal, and when the number goes up we hide from each other.

  10. So true and powerful. It's a sad reality today, and we may have learned too late to appreciate life before the pandemic. It does seem never-ending, but I'm hopeful it ends soon. Beautifully penned.
