Gathering

We’re not gathered here today
Upon great command
Because of the fear
Which is at hand
(Wash them often)

No asswipe on store shelves
(Means shit has happened)
Rationed rice to boot
Something amiss
Among riots and loot

[Once fear runs amuck
It’s just a matter of time]
Silly humans
& their nature
As if they don’t care

Price gouging
So profoundly

Recalling the years
Each disaster hits
And revisiting fears

A retronym to be fair
It’s the same as it was before
No icebox melting hearts
From the grocery store.
