When Can I Go Back Outside, Dammit! ~ a short poem by Katrina Curtiss 6/6/2020

In March, when the weather was nice and cool
Anyone who went out, I thought was a fool
In case you don’t know what I do mean
It was because of COVID~-19

Then just when things started to open again
And I was thinking of going out, seeing my friends
The protests began, in the streets, they did shout
I thought, I’d stay home and not run about

Now things are starting to calm back down
And I was thinking I could start running around
The sun is the biggest terror around
So I am stuck walking upon the same ground

Now you might think of me, that I am a fool
But, I’m going to put up a tiny baby pool
I’ll sit in it, with my knees pulled up to my chest
Beating the heat, as I only know best.
