Inhale Storm

Suck ups, breathe deep Unfortunate clamor for relief Old folks kept for long term storage Wild masses forage for papers for toilets Gas lit, lungs fit, COVID-19 bereft, lottery hits Benefits still don’t pass, til Easter passover Coming to an heir near you, sky clear views left out Smokey runs the gamit, to deliver perishables While schools are closed, only open for lunchables Computer driven bandwidth in free wi-fi for takeout Stakeout in lines for goods, probably already overpriced Cartoon character shows orange cats, Garfield runs for president So no one is home as we all get evicted, on the way too work Too sick to pay for tests or ventilators to relieve the depression I still cough up in distrust for authorities telling me what statistics say Like as if I can trust in stimulus paper held up in a house of senators So tired of tik tok dances and quarantine dance parties, we need recovery So I truly pray for the sick and scared to one day soon, Oh Lord I pray…. That one day soon we will all be blessed with appreciation 2b able to breathe easy! AMEN
