Covid - 19

COVID -19 Irrespective of what your size is You are not immune to Coronavirus So stay at home is sound advice As you may lose at the throw of the dice Man, woman or child, it does not care So dice with death...if you dare. This evil curse is here for a while He conducts his business with artless guile To offer the path of least resistance You must be sensible and keep your distance. This is not a disease to be treated lightly And one that will not go politely. Before he does he will take his toll Of thousands of humans and not trouble his soul. If you are lucky enough to escape his scythe Consider how others managed to survive. Often by the unselfishness of the NHS Those doctors, nurses, carers we will forever bless If it was not for the unselfish acts of public health staff There could many more treading a one way path.

Hello Arlene Phillips,so nice to meet you. The virus is here for awhile. We have to proect ourselves when going out. Wearing a mask and washing our hands is important to. Keeping your distance from a crowd is very important. Enjoy your day my friend.

The virus did NOT steal 2020! Morons like Donald Trump did! There are NO exemptions nor exceptions to a pandemic! Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell (who jogs) says joggers are exempt but every maskless jogger can spread COVID-19 droplets on innocent elderly folk waiting at a bus stop! Until government understand there are NO exceptions, the pandemic will plague us! Aloha! Rico

Who would have thought 2020 would have been stolen away from us because of a virus, I hope we never have to go through anything else like it,so much death and hardship caused to so many innocent people, the knock on effect has been catastrophic and affects us all. Stay safe my friend:-) hugs Jan xx
