enforce social distancing (here)

11 of 12 given words
breathe distance droplets kill liberty 
dance meet shy ignorant loser see

breathe easy to last the distance
droplets that filled the air floating leisurely
could kill in a blink as a consequence
just how deadly it could be

the liberty to dance around it the very instance
deflecting the woes contending to meet
shy of physical contact but of social distance
not to be ignorant of the requirement not to greet

not a loser but being wise to the new normal
to see that none would falter
the better the will to avoid a reversal
or clusters would readily bid to move faster

  2. A stark reminder Hank of what all people should be doing, I'm afraid some don't . Verse put wonderfully.


  3. Just staying back can make a big difference, if only many would do it.

  4. being wise to the new normal... that will work!
