One day, you know the world will restart
and all that’s slipped will itself restore
to a new order, a fresh, new heart.
The regimens of outdoor and indoor
will change again as they’ve in the past
and we’ll be free to take to the roads
without any temperatures asked
except maybe of the weather gods.
So be patient – wait for the needle
to straighten itself and to point true,
but steel aligns to the magnetic.
Some will drop but not all the people
hopefully among them me and you
ready to resume post pandemic.
