Land of Bandits (04/30/2020 @ 9:24 PM)

I used to dream about becoming a millionaire,
but now all I dream about is getting some fresh air

Being able to leave my house without any fear,
but who can go outside without being scared

COVID-19 has turned us into a land of bandits
where no one is safe without a face masking

It’s like living in an old western movie,
being the bad guy;
eyes are the only things you see
The others I look upon
are bandits like me

I wonder if they smirk beneath covered faces,
or maybe smile in my direction
Who knows for I cannot tell
the eyes don’t dispel any secrets

How long will we have to dress
like old western bank robbers?
Wearing facial coverings looking
the part of the bandits we’re not

The real culprit is the Coronavirus
but is it taking any responsibility
for the things we’ve endured
just to be seen?

We are a land of bandits
We have no other choice
if we want to live, at least
until COVID-19 leaves us be

***************

Author’s Note: Thank you for stopping by and taking a look-see. We are living in perilous times and for how long no one knows. Until there is a viable vaccine, stay home, stay safe, stay healthy. I’m rooting for mankind to kick this thing.
