Alleviate The Fear
It looks like Masks are in vogue again
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?
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
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,
