Exhale – (Weekly Decima Prompt #30)
A second deep intake of breath,
Oh no! Here we go once again,
Life in lockdown does in my brain.
Like the banquet scene in MacBeth,
Viral news has been done to death;
And nightmare restrictions assail,
Hands, face and space, to no avail.
When all four walls are closing in,
Don that mask over nose and chin,
Let go of that breath and exhale!
