Covid

A Plea and a Prayer

Stay at home they said,
Stay safe, stay well.
Stay at home they said,
Hold tight and dwell.

Social distance, they said:
if you have to work
Social distance they said.
Don’t be a jerk!

Stay home, stay safe;
protect fellow beings.
Stay home, stay safe,
Is not what we’re seeing.

Clusters of people
on buses and trains.
Key workers suffering,
stresses and strains.

Construction and flooring,
are not what we need!
Essentials and vitals:
not glamour or greed.

Please stop what you’re doing.
Please heed what’s been said,
Please all support this.
Before we’re all dead.
