01 Apr A Poem for Quarantine Inspired by Dr. Seuss
The buildings were big and people would smile
And travel they would mile by mile.
But sick they become, in numbers it grew
Businesses worried, communities too.
Things stopped for a bit, the world slowed its roll
The virus has certainly taken its toll.
But what they then saw from slowing things down,
Is in fact they now had less reasons to frown.
Families now gathered, what game shall we play?
Pass me the blue crayon, give Mommy the grey.
Dad’s home guys! He’ll read us a book
then all of us together will cook.
The lungs of the planet caught a small break
less travel meant less pollution to make.
People did realize they’d all be OK
They don’t need so much to get through the day.
Maybe this virus that caused so much stress
Showed the whole world that more can mean less.
