The New Normal

Washing your hands repeatedly is now a part
of life
Wearing a mask is now the
new normal

Welcome to a brand-new decade where things will
be different
Nearly everything will be turned on
its head

So, don’t get too comfortable because things
will change
And I know, no one really likes disruption to
their lives

But now you won’t be able to leave
your house
And you will need to get used to the word:
lockdown

Now you won’t be able to
shake hands
Or hug anyone even if they are
your family

And now you will be working
from home
If you even have a job
anymore

But it’s times like these that can spark
a metamorphosis
A change in the world, and a change
in ourselves

Perhaps this is what the
world needs
Perhaps this is what
I need

Washing your hands repeatedly is now a part
of life
Wearing a mask is now the
new normal

I like to play with words and create new worlds. I also like chocolate. And cake.
