More Advice Regarding the Coronavirus

More Advice Regarding the Coronavirus

With the coronavirus, it’s been given to debate
whether it’s advisable for people to conflate.
Though Pence may okay shaking hands, doctors disagree.
I’d listen to the experts if it were up to me!

Cheek-kisses were delightful in eras non-pandemic,
but lately people fear that they might start an epidemic.
So we’d better kick the habit and make do with a tweet—
just clicking our affection to everyone we meet.

Let safety be our anchor as we all isolate—
our crowded barrooms giving way to the cyber date.
Bitcoins replacing money, for it doesn’t carry germs.
Wearing masks and hazmat suits as we come to terms

with what our esteemed president once tried to pass off
as no major problem—a mere temperature and cough.
Tweeting like a dervish, he still gets such a kick
spreading disinformation as more and more get sick.

But I have a solution for one thing that we could do
to try to stem the factors spreading this dreadful flu—
a mandatory gag and a mandatory mask
for POTUS and Vice-POTUS is what we all should ask.

Prompts for today are delightful, conflate, kick, anchor and money.

    Dare I think it — if POTUS and Vice-POTUS continue to shake hands and to stand cheek-by-jowl next to others, etc, against medical advice, perhaps they will both come down with the virus — we’d then have Nancy Pelosi as President!

    And there I was waiting for you to recommend Garry’s favorite beer. He doesn’t really like beer, but Corona reminds him of summers on the dock at the Vineyard. With a piece of lemon or lime, please.

      There was a man wandering around the Chapala Society grounds with a can of Corona asking where the corona group was meeting. Not really that funny..and to be truthful, I didn’t catch on the first time he wandered by and asked. I was manning the information booth and busy telling everyone all the events that had been cancelled.
