Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
Displeasure over need for quarantine.


by Rick McVicar

Life is often times a struggle
In a society demanding freedom
Why do I feel unfairly muzzled?
Will you just wear a face mask, please.

Now I sit at home quarantined
Neighbors are gravely ill with COVID
People are gathering with families
Community values been sold.

TV ads show festivities,
Dancing as if no virus exists,
At least I'm getting plenty of rest
Getting lonesome, I must resist.

Anger flares at those who deny
That COVID is a real enemy,
They prefer to live out a big lie
I just hope virus is not sent to me.

This is the end of my second full day of quarantine, coming right before Thanksgiving.
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
