The lighthouse keeper


A mile from the marker and yet it gets darker,
the dawn must be coming along soon,
is it apt that we’re trapped and the virus roams free?

My body used to be
a temple
and now it has become
a testing ground,
but
I am up for it
I shall have the vaccine
keep well and get fit,

Plan B is not for the virus to run free but for me
to escape this lockdown state.
