The Pandemic Shuffle

It’s two metres to the left,

Or six feet to the right.

Mouth and nose are covered,

And welcome to our plight.


Washing hands so carefully,

To the beat of that old song.

Is how we try to save a life,

You know it is not wrong.


The entire world is hurting,

A new reality is come,

How many people will be lost?

Before this Pandemic’s done?


Businesses are in danger,

Livelihoods are in peril.

The only thing that we can do,

Is pray that hand is sterile!


We keep our spirits up,

As we muddle through our day.

Do our best for each other,

And hope we find our way.


Help is coming I believe,

A vaccine will make it right.

And then the world will start anew,

With all our human might.

    You captured the whole shuffle perfectly. Well done. 😀
    We’ve been living with the masks, social distancing and sanitizing for 5 months now – it is the new norm! But it really does make a difference. 🙂

      Our numbers are way down in Canada. The masks and social distancing are being enforced. In areas where it is not, the numbers are going up again. Due diligence. Just look at the U.S. and their numbers!

        I’m happy to hear that your numbers are decreasing. Canada has done well in dealing with this pandemic. 🙂
        But yes – it is all about the masks, social distancing and hand sanitizing.
