social distancing

I am the very model of effective social distancing!
I listen to the experts on the topic of resistance-ing;
I know that brunch and yoga class aren’t nearly as imperative
As doing what I can to change the nation’s viral narrative.

I’m very well acquainted, too, with living solitarily
And confident that everyone can do it temporarily;
Go take a walk, or ride a bike, or dig into an unread book;
Avoid the bars and restaurants and carry out, or learn to cook.

There’s lots of stuff to watch online while keeping safe from sinus ills
(in this case, it’s far better to enjoy your Netflix MINUS chills)!
Adopt a pet, compose a ballad, write some earnest doggerel,
And help demolish Trump before our next event inaugural.

Pandemics are alarming, but they aren’t insurmountable
If everybody pitches in to hold ourselves accountable.
In short, please do your part to practise prudent co-existence-ing,
And be the very model of effective social distancing!

  1. Our solitary living styles is of great advantage Kate, and I think we’re able to adapt quite easily to the present restrictions…. I have my music(Always), lots of poetry books to read, I enjoy my writing, I’ve a lovely open parkland to walk in, and my food supplies will be adequate…. and clean Australian water is still running from the tap….. 💙💙🌏

  2. Beautifully and clearly you conveyed how we can defend ourselves against a virus that has spread throughout the world. I don’t leave the house, but I have to go to surgery, so I’m very worried. I have to leave the house and the virus contact in the hospital is much greater.
    Take care of yourself, be healthy!
