Alleviate The Fear

Oh!Dear It looks like Masks are in vogue again I fear Another new virus has appeared Complicating lives and causing more worry and pain, Another strain, another strain. Politics, I do not understand We can no longer make plans. For tomorrow or beyond Where has common sense gone? The world is an awful mess, Everywhere looks sad and depressed Grey skies in Spring that should be blue What are we all going to do? Oh! Dear Christmas should be full of cheer, Lightening hearts at the end of the year That has been very tough For too many folks, Who has tolerated more than enough? If these new variants of the viruses take hold; The politicians should have told We must be aware, Of the health issues lurking in the air Everywhere. Distances and wearing masks It is an inconvenient little task, It is much better than the alternative If more people want to live Through this awful epidemic It helps avoid a pandemic. The mask will alleviate some of the fear, Oh! dear

So many people cough without covering their mouth that it is worthwhile in congested areas to wear a facemask. Enjoyed, Shirley! Aloha!

Unmask us! I don’t wear them much…just to the doctor…where frankly we might find an illness…lol. Got my flu shot today. I used to tell my mom, so today it’s you….

Hi, Kim I usually wear a mask for Drs, too; I heard yesterday that a new variant of covid has infected some people in SA, causing concern as Christmas is not far away. As far as I know, it hasn't been on the news yet. (hence the poem) Your last comment made me smile, Kim, I have had all the shots as I have many ailments, which are to be expected at 85, but that did not stop me from appreciating your caring advice. I hope you have a pleasant week. Take care. Shirley
