Shopping At A Safe Distance

Standing in line, besides my disinfected trolley

In the supermarket car park, under my brolly

Distance shopping, it is the new normal

Two meters apart, so serious and formal

I quickly pick groceries, for others and mine

I queue down the aisle, it's a very long line

The assistant sits safe, behind a plastic screen

Sprays and hand gel, making everything clean

I miss the old days, browsing at leisure

I remember when, to shop was a pleasure

For now the new normal is how it must be

To keep the virus away from you and from me

I think we all can relate to this new norm Julie

some great use of rhyme here, reality well captured.
