Title

Covid ‘Common Sense’ (Poem)

Description

Title chosen with apologies to Tom Paine.

First two stanzas:

I’m not afraid of Covid,
Of hornets, ghosts, or bears;
I run with scissors in my hands;
And lean back on my chair.

I cross the street just where I please
And never look both ways;
I wore a seatbelt years ago,
But that was just a phase.
