Corona Control

care on a viral tweet
stops you dancing
with the guys on the street
there’s no prancing
there’s no romancing
only glancing
at one you’d like to meet

safe from a hidden burn
you shut them out
take another and another turn
at throwing dice about
where no one sees without
electron microscopes of doubt
enabling us to learn

closeted in a duvet shell
only your breathing
only your solitary smell
and the pain of teething
keeps out the seething
of those believing
you have entered hell

and you want this hour
to release your fears
step into a shower
wash off years
of dread and sneers
and with some viral sheers
cut down every leader’s power
