Quarantine

Emmorrison 1971 (Mountain Home)

Quarantine, necessary,
Yet, a pain,
God got me through,

Quarantine,
A blessing and
A curse,

Your mind wonders
Many places,
You long to talk to
Someone,

Even people in the
Past that hated you
Or you them,

How will history be
Told in these covid-19
Times?

Quarantine,
Masks,
Gloves,
Sanitizer

How will they write
This down,
Will our sanity hold
Up through these times?

About this poem
