Till Death Do Us Part


People still wear masks
you see them all the time
despite the fact
masks are no longer mandated
and have been proven ineffective
some people still cling to their masks
like Linus to his blanket
they cannot let go
it is their security
their thumb
they still need that mask to function
the would not know how to behave without one
they desperately want it
it is now like an appendage
an arm or a leg
they have to have it to maintain
their mental and physical balance
masks will remain on their faces forever
they got used to it
and now cannot part with their beloved mask
it is their talisman
their sign of the cross
warding off evil spirits
and when they die
they will go to their grave fully Masked
because you just never know
someone could give them
Covid.
