What we considered as a normal way of life may be gone forever. How do we create a new normal though?
Is this Normal?
Social distance that rules the day
Separation in measured lines
A hand-shake is now a thing of the past
Where ever we turn are the Warning signs
To hug a friend has become taboo
A kiss on the cheek is so out of bounds
A pat on the back to say "well done"
Brings about the most disapproving sounds
Such regimental rules that apply
In the workplace it's so very formal
The casual banter and laughing out loud
Are forbidden in this new kind of "normal"
Could this be the future we have to share
Must we accept it and just "move along"?
We're social creatures but this "normal" denies
Those forbidden feelings we still hold strong.
