GROUNDHOG DAY

Every day 
Begins the same
How’d it happen?
Who’s to blame?

Needing to
Go back to work
Make my lunch
Iron my shirt.

But “Groundhog Day”
Starts again
It’s all the same
As it begins.

Need the money
Need to feel
We can survive
This vile ordeal.

Everything’s
Been turned around
Can’t figure out
What’s up or  down.

Bills are high
Funds are low
Can’t leave the house
Nowhere to go.

Can’t get close
Six feet apart
This distancing
Just breaks my heart.

Wish that this
Was just a  dream
Still waiting for
A safe vaccine.

So upset
What can we do?
I’m so afraid
Of losing you.

Let’s wear our masks
Wash our hands
Let’s do our best
Do what we can.
