Self-Isolation

Self-Isolation

 

Circumstances might dictate
That we need self-isolate
It’s not that we have to atone
For sins we rightly should disown

No, victims we all may become
Of disease passed freely from someone
We did not ask for this free gift
Happy if we would be missed

A hermit we don’t want to be
Far rather we would still be free
Within our world not isolated
From all constraint be liberated

Defenceless from this spreading virus
Becomes pandemic – undesirous
Let’s hope in time the threat declines
And of improvement we catch signs

But in the meantime it’s a waiting game
Predictions made then counterclaim
Eventually the bug might tire
And world-wide panic should expire

If self-isolation becomes your fate
Normal living in stalemate
Like the stoics, without emotion
Pass each new day as in slow motion
