Text

Republicans in congress won’t wear masks; seems
they want to die, but can’t admit it any other way

grocery store pickup works like a charm;
drug store’s the most dangerous place I go

other people can be a pain, now
they’re walking death threats

foggy dreary cold damp afternoon,
but I just saw a fox run across the field

overcast skies and covid,
I’m tired of them both

4:30, and it’s already sundown;
though there was no sunup today
