For more than five months, we’ve seen our safe world changed,
locked up inside, we all became quite deranged.
Unnecessary travel strictly curtailed,
just work, grocery store, and Doc, if you ailed.
Little by little, we flattened Covid curve,
reopening discussed, we gathered our nerve.
Soon, new freedoms were granted, slowly at first,
hoping for the best, we prepared for the worst.
Taking our sweet time, not looking for trouble,
trying hard not to burst our Covid bubble.
Shopping and take-out, if you wore your mask,
we cleaned and sanitized more than was asked.
Still no handshakes or hugs and no social mix,
just outdoor visits, if you practice “Safe Six”.
Without any chance of long distance travel,
our content little world could soon unravel.
Looking for someplace exciting, we could go,
happy we found our rural Covid tableau.
