Can we not ZOOM today?
"Time Out" by JLR
Sometimes, I simply feel the need
to unplug, deprogram, unstress,
just take a time out,

Life tosses more at us than we they say, "Say Grace over,"
but really there is so much more
in store and mostly it is all a bore.

We can, jump and shout and I might
even want to pout and, oh! the amount
we heap deep onto our plates in
twenty-four hours makes things creepy.

It used to  be meetings, and airports,
a conference or two more than I
wanted to do. But now, its zoom,
in a room and hoping the lighting
doesn't make me look pale or stale
or worst case frail.
