Friday 13th just got serious

entry picture

It's usually the day

To steer clear of ladders

Blacks cats

If only they'd avoided

Those random 

Flying bats

Nobody really understands 

Exactly what we should do

Just got to keep

Washing our hands

Buying extra roll

For the loo

Good luck and

Hand sanitiser

Both in such short supply

Borris seems none the wiser

So do your best and

Try not to die

Beware of the media's love to scare
Beware of the politician's idea of care;
Not sure whether to laugh or cry?
Just take care to live - not die. 😌

Very topical in every respect of the word and tinged with dark humour. The last line caused me to burst out laughing.

Well done
