Ouroboros

Do not fear the reaper,
but give the scythe no welcome mat.

I say, this life was a choice
(to be here)
(at this time)
& as Hicks would put it,

A fantastic roller-coaster ride
with all its thrills,
and chills.

Fasten your seat belts
For this is just another climb
& your stomach may drop
on the way down

An allure of an unlocked door,
the Sun knocking the windowsill
like a childhood friend, asking
If you can play.

You can’t go out today,
tomorrow,
or for the foreseeable future.
You know Why.

The parks will be empty,
shops shuttered and the only lights
coming in the night will be
Hunting for you.
