Revised Seventh Entry, Coronavirus Poetry Diary: "Laughing" in the Face of Adversity

just like the flu ...
all eyes on the last pack
of toilet paper

social distancing ...
further and further away
from the President

Relax, it all will pass ...
this infectious silence
of the American Dream Mall

we're doing great ...
in my virus-free dream
the White House locked down
