POEM #16- Pandemic


 Shortly after the pandemic started, my school made a video featuring everyone from my school. I figured the kids were a lot more interested in seeing pictures of Rooney...


"Pandemic"

My mama is a busy lady.

She takes me lots of places.

School.

Bible Study.

Spanish Class.

Book club.

Restaurants.

Movies.

Museums.

Parks.

We have lots of fun.


And then one day

everything

stops


and
we 
don’t 
go 
anywhere
for
a
very
long
time.

This new life is boring.

Oh my, I imagine it was a huge change for Rooney as it was for us all! Love the picture, Carol!

Rooney's post is heart wrenching. At least we know why life screeched to a stop. Poor Rooney. How he must have missed going out!
