Sacrifices to the Crown

 Sacrifices to the Crown


 Stay indoors, do not go out;

now we are all dead.

Venture out only virtually;

now we are all ghosts.

When you do go out, stay six feet apart;

now we are all monsters.

When you go to shop or bank, wear a mask;

now we are all superheroes,

now we are spies,

now we are criminals,

caught in the act,

guilty of the crime of life.

When you get home, wash your red hands

for twenty seconds

long enough to confess.

And above all, do not touch your face;

you might not have one.
