Don't you hate it when, You have an argument and It sticks around like A moody storm cloud That no sage or quartz crystal Can smoke from the room?

Don’t you hate it when,
You have an argument and
It sticks around like

 

A moody storm cloud
That no sage or quartz crystal
Can smoke from the room?

 

There is no escape
From this Contagion nightmare…
Do anybody

 

Remember what the
Friday feeling is right now?
Dawn, noon, midnight blend

 

I try to read and
Find myself staring at the
page it’s a blank wall.

 

I have to study

yet I cannot think about

time so how can I?

 

Words are empty air
“Stay safe” is not a greeting
You have to *act* it

 

Stay two metres apart,
Where it is safe to do so
Be considerate

 

It is not that hard
I am rambling now because
I am sad, and tired.
