So here we all are, stuck at home,
With no place to go and nowhere to roam.
Although there are aspects that aren’t so bad,
It’s not the most fun I’ve ever had.
I hope the guy next door never peeks;
I haven’t worn make-up in over three weeks.
Sometimes I sneak to the grocery store,
Otherwise life is a total bore.
I’m on the lookout for TP,
Willing to pay an extra fee.
And while this is surely a bitter pill,
I’ve enjoyed binge watching Dr. Phil.
Thank God for my phone, always close by,
I text all the time so that I can say “Hi!”
I have to remember to call folks and speak;
Before my brain has reached its peak.
My cat fills in some of the social gap,
Though he won’t let me move if he’s in my lap.
I’m reading and writing and walking a bit,
Trying to get myself to do more than sit.
Let’s hope that this madness ends pretty soon
Hopefully some time before next June.
