...or, 'A list to assist' :>)


Shield days

Late March, our FT learns she is 'EV'
'Extremely Vulnerable', the letter states;
'High Risk', as well, in category 3,
of being 'Severe', the health team estimates
concerning illness levels; 'Make a list,'
they add, 'of pills, prescriptions, pack a bag',
'be ready for the ward' well, that's the gist,
and, last, the links, Gov sites, a Twitter tag;
we list, instead, the ways we shall prevent
the foe from loitering in our abode
from masks to sprays with potent lemon scent,
establishing an office safety code;
the shield days end is looming, end of June
R, though, is rising, with the thunder moon.

Oh, it must be tough, Coo & Co. I hope everything is going to be alright with FT. The problem seems two-fold: fighting the EV and High Risk case as well as shielding the mad virus enter in the inner world. I send you and FT my prayers. :)

I imagine that it's quite frightening to be called "extremely vulnerable." It's good that you've done well so far. A fine poem, as always.
