"I Do Not Like To Wear a Mask" by forestport12
I do not like to wear a mask when I eat or when I sleep
I do not like to wear a mask in the park, or on a playground, or on a hike
I do not like to wear a mask in bus, on a plane, in a train, or on a bike
I do not like to where a mask in church or at a game.
