  1. two friends walking in the snow

    two old friends are walking in the snow
    heading to their grandma’s house
    in the midst of the corona madness
    they need to check on her

    hoping that they don’t infect her
    as she is almost ninety years old
    living alone in a country home

    they walk through the snow
    hoping that when they arrive
    that they will her alive

    water of my life

    water of my life
    flowing through the water pipes
    filling with water
    filling me with hope and fear
    I drink polluted water
    Hope and Despair

    Hope springs eternal
    On the daily news
    Perfect storm
Everywhere we go

    Despair fills my heart
    Everywhere we are
    Simply put death is at hand
    Planning for the future
    At worst we will all die
    In the long term we are all dead
    Remembering the dead all around
