I wrote this poem in March of 2022.

me in March of 2020 when the Pandemic started

Toilet paper, hand sanitizer,
Masks, COVID tests

the judgy quarantined
Karens and Brads
the overwhelmed essential

Solitary confinement
Endless work hours

Creative new hobbies
No time to think or sleep

Neverending restlessness
Neverending adrenaline rushes

Mental breakdowns for all
This was the Zeitgeist
of COVID times
