Wiped Out


There are no wipes

to sanitize,

for us to wash

and wipe our hands


But empty shelves

are our surprise,

supply couldn't keep up

with demand


A single wipe's

now quite a prize,

so scarce are they

throughout the land


We bear the blame

we must surmise,

united but un-wiped

we stand.

Our Labs were always squeaky clean

But It made me nip up more than once.

Masks, gloves, visors, gowns, one's own air supply...

Still, some poor sods managed to die.

Once you step outside that vacuum where no living soul can breath
you're not squeaky clean any more. Such safety will sometimes deceive.

I have to ask - just what is clean...
And to what level do you mean?
Hence this impertinent polemical.
Connected with concerns about things chemical ! :😯
