Quarantine


Quarantine like a Benedictine.
There’s plenty of time,
For wondering what could have bēēn.

Coronavision in the dark,
Zoom screens. Little screams from the start.
I’d hate to be seventeen.
Give me caffeine and amphetamine,
Get me out of this in-between.

Now I am so lost, from me.
always had a need to be alone, for me.
What is the cost, to me.
Who are the ones who have condone, for me.
Isolation from one another, you see.
Now it’s all too much, to me
and for everyone else.

Looking forward to the deliveryman to Intervene,
Its another person acknowledging me.
How They’re getting us out of this pandemic scene; its so Byzantine!
When will it end; we all need our friends.
Forgotten all about hygiene, sleepin’ in my jeans.

One day is like another.
She can’t even visit her mother.
Just read another magazine.
Magdeline puts on her Maybelline to go nowhere.
Christine discovers new reasons to care.
The heretics still doing the Tridentine.
The Alt-right are toting the opposing line.

Now I am so lost, from me.
always had a need to be alone, for me.
What is the cost, to me.
Who are the ones who have condone, for me.
Isolation from one another, you see.
Now it’s all too much, to me
and for everyone else.

Travelling to the store is fearful to the core
Few are wearing masks, it isn’t a difficult task.
Quarantine like a Benedictine.
There’s plenty of time,
For wondering what could have been.

Clean are they all, those Florentines.
Brazil is returning to be a thrill.
Not so united but with new leadership
The act is coming together in the States.
Saved by Sacred Lips has got to be our fates.

Now I am so lost, from me.
always had a need to be alone, for me.
What is the cost, to me.
Who are the ones who have condone, for me.
Isolation from one another, you see.

Now it’s all too much, to me
and for everyone else.
It’s like fire and kerosene.
Hope there’s never again
A Quarantine!
