Making the Best of It. A Video Text Poem by Sara L. Russell



Make time for oatmeal
slap it on your face
A mask is always useful
Think about Mindfulness
enter the id
explore the more spiritual
Get into baking
throw nothing away
cut your own hair
A virtual pub quiz
almost the same
as being there
So here is Friday
a bit like Thursday
by another name
Here is a message
stay home save lives
be good, play the game
Here comes a baldy
With cold dead eyes
to tell you again
Here’s a comedian
saying the same thing
but makes it a joke
There’s good little children
there’s a good housewife
that’s a good bloke
Spring is forbidden
summer is cancelled
commerce has died
So dance in your bedroom
sing into your hairbrush
Pretend they all lied.
