things may seem at a standstill
lockdown may not thrill
none of us are over the moon
but that will all change soon

there wont be a recital
our resilience will be vital
to face what comes next
nobody has written that text

creative thinking is called for
ingenuity and flexibility the lore
for worthy employment and life
to keep us all from strife

if we all stand together
united we can weather
those storms that may cause
harm, let’s breath and pause

so don’t be a fool
let kindness rule
united we withstand
from sinking in the sand

for if we seek a target to blame
or single some out for shame
it’s detrimental to our health
we only cripple our self

find your new normal
no need to be formal
as we conquer this one
turn it around, make it fun!
