The Six Feet Rule
It's a matter of life or death

by Greg Asimakoupoulos

Six feet over or six feet under?
The choice seems clear. And yet I wonder
why so many disregard
a life or death decree.

There's breathing room in six short feet.
So, why do you hug those you meet?
Just keep your distance. Play it safe.
The space you grant is grace.

Don't get too close. Give others room.
If you refuse, the deadly gloom 
that circumvents our precious globe
will largely go unchecked.

When we obey what we are told
the weak and fragile (and the old)
can rest assured we'll do our part
to keep this bug at bay.
