The eerie silence
of Covid compliance
no hiding and seeking
no swinging and singing
no boisterous dashing
no playful splashing.
Just Mousekin afloat without a boat.
Just the eerie Covid silence.
Every time I walk past this playground I feel sad
because I rarely see children playing here these days.
Children have no control over their lives!
It’s up to us, the adults in the world,
to help get this pandemic under control.
Please wear a mask, wash your hands and keep a safe distance.
And don’t forget to be kind to others!
