Long COVID - a poem

Tired. Wired. Uninspired. 

Cooped up inside. A world divided. 

Wait. Anticipate. Hesitate. 

Increasing R-rates. We need to connect, share, relate.

What is long COVID and why is COVID lasting so long? 

Without new hair, nails, and restaurants. 

How will we all stay current?

Live lives that are vibrant.

With ego’s that are potent.

Reliant. Vacant. Attainment.

When did our lives lack substance?

Defiance. Resistance. Reluctance. 

I’m starting to lose my patience.
