How much longer

CD60D486-EED9-48F1-80D1-8B1BE356654E

Stay two meters away from each other

Don’t visit people at their homes in big numbers

Don’t fill up the coffee shops

Only so many people allowed

Sounds anti-social, doesn’t it?

But it’s our reality now and we can’t let our guard down yet

The variants are rampant

Areas that are doing well suddenly flare up

Where you can fly to and not fly to keeps changing

Some countries, you can visit only in groups

The sanitizer bottle is omnipresent

Masks still adorn our faces

How much longer?

That’s a good question

It depends a little on how much 

Responsibility we will take in combating this disease

Some people still deny its existence

They refuse to wear masks and socially distance

Vaccines are out of the question for them

And on the other hand

There are countries that are having a challenge

Vaccinating a population that wants to be vaccinated

It’s a messy and dangerous situation 

The hospitals are filled to capacity

The medical staff work long hours and are tired

So politicians try to give people incentives to get vaccinated

Money, lotteries, gifts, whatever they can think of

It’s a strange, strange world we live in

One we could not have imagined two years ago
