Another old chestnut

Closing the borders?
not guaranteed to
stop the disease.

Unrest, unease,
are the lights going out?

Panic buying
everyone trying
to get their fill,

frightened of dying?
you will,
one day.

I’m ringing the bell
eating garlic as well
as two shots of vodka,

I’m guessing it’s Karma,
but I could be wrong.
