covid, cobra or viper

my friend

could not pronounce covid

she called it


when covid started mutating

she called the next virus


she could remember shakes

i wonder if the next

mutation will be called

rattle snake/

i’m just wondering

nothing wrong with

guessing what’s next

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
