Everyone knows everything
And they’re all busy telling me
Their theories about what to do
And all the ways in which we
Are completely and perfectly screwed.
(Or we’re perfectly all right, it’s just the ‘flu).
But as for me -
I don’t know anything,
So I’m doing as I’m told -
Washing my hands and staying at home.
And when I go for the walks
That are so good for my heart,
I wear my mask and keep six feet apart.
(Note: I wrote this last year, during lockdown).
