Hi everybody! Slow news day today—so I figured that I would introduce you to one of my newest creations entitled “Mask.” Please check out my other poems in my newest book, “Just Sister Jackie: My First Collection of Poetic Observances.” The Audible book is available for sale on Amazon. Let’s now turn our attention to the unveiling of “Mask.”
Why the question? Should I or shouldn't I? Do you want to die? Believing the big lie I don't even understand Why you listen to that man Stop making this so complex You're starting to make me vex Truly we are in the last days Look at all of your selfish ways You don't care about me and I should care about you Phew! Smells like mildew Why are you forcing me to spew My humble point of view All because you refuse to wear A simple piece of gear! That will diminish our fear Of that virus arriving at our front door Intending to rock us to our very core What unnecessary pain to endure What more? Do we have to say To get you to see things our way In essence, it is such a simple ask So why not Please Just put on your Mask?! Poem by: Jacqueline Greene, copyright, 2020. All rights reserved.
What’s the problem? We are all accustomed to wearing those invisible masks anyway, especially when we encounter strangers and friends. Let’s stop pretending like those masks are not there and move them from the inside to the outside. Be true to thine self. Such a simple ask and an even simpler task. Stay blessed everyone!
