An I’m Still Staying Home Limerick

by Joel Kravitz


If patience is a virtue, then I’m going to be a saint.

Shakespeare was not going to the beach during the plague. He knew better. Hamlet had this to say about it – ‘Tis better to bear the ills we have than fly to others that we know not of.  And we know of the ills of COVID19. The numbers speak for themselves.

Staying home’s easier said than done.
Time doesn’t fly when you’re not having fun.
But I’ll stay at home,
And I’m not going to roam
Until the war against Covid is won.

Or at least until I feel that going out is not going to put me in danger and right now, I still do

  1. A feeling shared – although I have of late ventured out for short 6-mile circular walks on the hills near home. No people of course but the sense of freedom is palpable.
