Mask. A poem (moan) by Siobhan Lunn

I don’t want to see any more clips
That are heartwarming, funny or cute
Don’t want to know any more stats
Up or down, the countries following in suit

Don’t want to read motivational quotes
Or stand gloved in another queue
Why did that guy cough there?
Was it COVID or a regular flu?

Enough of that now! Stop dwelling
On negative thoughts and apprehension
Pick yourself up, put on a smile
And of black thoughts – not even a mention!
