It’s Beginning to Sound Like Pre-Plague Sneezing

It’s beginning to sound like pre-plague sneezing
Ev’ry nose we blow
Takes us down to the store, again; for tissues and cough drops, then
The doctor’s office, where the co-pays flow.

It’s beginning to sound like pre-plague wheezing
Sick beds on the floors
And the neighbors and we will be – hanging signs of quarantine
On our own front doors.

        That would be nice. Also, we have too many things that wake us up. Bears and groundhogs don’t have jobs and alarm clocks.

    Nicely done. I’m sorry that your words are most likely coming from experience. Wish you and your family the very best in fighting through the plague.

    Sounds like a round of hot green tea, chicken broth to clear the nose and chest. Also my nurse at school college recommended I cover my head with a towel and breathe in steaming boiling water. I was well and back in class within three days.
