How much is too much

How much can we sleep
the day the night
it's sad news
takes the life of me

Sunday I normally sleep late
but a rare voice called out at me
wake up it's a holiday
the country can't sleep
6 a.m

Corona makes all weep
why now remember 1918
for that time's calamity
human beings in 100 years
did nothing

Memory is short lived

Come listen to me
enjoy today
for tomorrow we may
may not be
fly about like a honey bee
enjoy honey so sweet
let's call it May day
every body

Come sing with me

with you, just don't breathe on me. I'm not ready to take my chances with Covid-19 and my death. I'll wait for a while yet.

I'll sing with you too. You are right that our daily lives have changed drastically ,there are so many without jobs so on and those who are fighting this virus. Sleeping is hard as we are out of sync and stressed It's a terrible time for this world and we should all take care of eachother. I also thinking domestic violence being on the rise it's so very sad what's going on. Also for children when they see adults wearing masks must be thinking something.

Thank you...Teddy

you Teddy are most welcome to sing
we both can to Niagara HAPPINESS bring
as we along the walk
laugh talk and sing
more folks will join in

like the PIED PIPER OF HAMLIN
WE will take all
up to the fall
then they themselves will decide
what to do

sing or cut off our wings
Virus no one can touch as such...
yet there is no vaccine
