Keeping My Mind off the Virus

Cardinal flew in on a dream Lighting my hair on fire But it was better than normal So I said thank you I was on my third cup of coffee Nothing could bother me I attached a message to its foot And off it flew to my friend’s cottage in Puerto Rico Helen Reddy’s I am Woman was playing in my mind for some reason My ridiculously notorious pet raccoon was painting her nails That is not your color I started to say But retracted quickly; after all she is a Gemini Telling a Gemini what to do is like talking to an Aquarius Leo is the only other sign that would kill you for a suggestion Raccoon began to fix my hair and I relaxed This would keep her entertained and in the house We were under strict orders to stay inside in Kansas City If we break that rule we could get six months in jail Worse yet, we might have to pay a five hundred dollar fine I spent all my money on toilet paper yesterday.
