An I’m Still Staying Home Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

stayhomesafely-

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.

A Pandemic Worst Practice Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

pandemic protestor

There are no problems that “ignore it and maybe it will go away” won’t make worse, especially health problems. I borrowed the gist of that statement from AA, which believes in admission and support as the foundation for solving the problem. Admission and support are exactly what is needed now to solve the pandemic problem. Anything other than that will only exacerbate it.

A Pandemic Appearance Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

I can’t post a selfie because it would be a scary. I look like a cross between Santa Claus and Doc Brown from Back To The Future. I start every day the same way. I walk into the bathroom, look in the mirror, scream, do a costume change from pj’s to sweatpants and head to the kitchen to make coffee.

A Mother’s Day Meal Fit For A Queen Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

mother's day meal

I am a foodie and I belong to many FB food groups including a few with names specific to the pandemic. I know all about #stayhomeandcook and #stayhomeandeat. I have done lots of both and written a few limericks about it. I love seeing all the creativity and beautiful presentations of everyone cooking while staying home. It was especially great to see all the effort that went into cooking for Mother’s Day. I know that everyone will agree that being a mother may be the most essential job needed during these uncertain times. Job well done everyone.

Staying home is the right thing to do. But it is not easy. You have a lot of time to think about our uncertain future and that leads to anxiety. And it is boring. But when there is nothing to do, there is always something you can do…..

An Acrostic “HEROS” Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

 

real heros

After watching more news on television than I ever have in my life, I am appalled at how politics and political figures are dealing, or not dealing, with the pandemic in such self-serving ways. There have been some exceptions who have demonstrated decisive leadership, and, unfortunately, the news focuses on those that haven’t. But what we have seen everyday is the exceptional courage and determination of the actual boots-on-the-ground frontline “soldiers” battling the pandemic every minute of every day. They are and will be remembered as the real HEROS

A Shakespearean Solution Limerick

by Joel Kravitz

There is nothng funny about the pandemic and what it has done to turn the world and the lives of everyone in it upside down. It would be impossible to write a traditional “joke” limerick with a four line setup and a fifth line punchline about it. However, I hope that I can use a touch of humor to send a serious message by slightly altering one of my best limericks where I take possibly the most famous speech in the English language and give it a Texas twist. I had to take a few liberties with the meter to get the message right

The world was riding high in the saddle,
Now, it’s up a creek with no paddle.
Tis not just nobler in the mind
To sit home on your behind…
It will make this Sea of Troubles skedaddle!
