Poetry in a Pandemic: We got this
You stay 6 feet from me. I’ll stay 6 feet from you.
You wear latex gloves for me, I’ll wear latex gloves for you.
You wash your hands 20 seconds for me, I’ll wash my hands 20 seconds for you.
You wear a mask for me, I wear 2 masks for you.
You say a prayer for me, I’ll say a prayer for you.
