The Second Time Around

Eight months ago to the day and date,
I ran with my mates for what seemed the last time.
COVID took everything out.

There have been spotty runs together,
Hit or miss gatherings and lots of social distancing,
But mostly I’ve been running on my own.

Today, I decided to go solo, again.
These numbers, the trends, they’re too much for me.
I’m hating it.

All the uncertainty with the virus,
The impact on people’s lives,
It’s getting to be more than I want to handle.

This wave I’m better prepared,
More stuff to do in case of a lockdown,
But I’m hoping it doesn’t go that way.

See you guys when it’s better.
