Oh, the irony of the SF COVID curfew
The day before St Patty's;
Though the parade had long
been cancelled for sure,
this ensures that the day and night would be far more demure.
But instead of feeling indignation,
can we cultivate reverence for
all of human civilization?
These stark orders help protect the lives
of not just you and me,
But the broader swath
of global humanity.
So even without formal St. Patty's plans, or
debauchery among all those green beer fans;
Think we could still score the luck
Of the Irish in our favor, in our hands?
To reverse the spread of COVID
And be something of which we soon are rid.
That would be far better than any pot of gold or rainbow,
To be able to end the fear, mass suffering and sorrow.
May it be so, and to that end,
please stay socially distant,
but emotionally close, my friend.
I'll see ya on the flipside,
Which I'm confident we'll get to
If we take it all in stride.
And please for everyone's sake,
just stay inside!
