No mask, no gloves 

No places that I loved

No restaurants are open 

Just gotta keep hoping

All I do is sleep and dream

If I look out this window again, I swear I’ll scream!

Ate my third dinner today

Wondering how much I weigh

Some may wonder if I snapped

I guess I’m alright — just trapped. 


Stay safe customers and Street Sense Media friends!
