Don't forget to stop and smell the flowers
this crisis is a matter of days and hours
it's not forever, and yeah, it's scary
but non-stop fear will leave you too wary.
You don't need to stand next to anyone
to take in some peace from a setting sun.
A book is a single player adventure in text
and it can be good for your head to change context.
I'm not advocating ignorance, keep yourself informed!
But once you tend to that, and to keeping yourself warm
press pause on the panic, it'll be there when you get back
take a couple hours and allow yourself to kick back.
Take a few deep breaths, squeeze in a couple naps
Go from headlines to punchlines and find a couple laughs.
There's a couple kinds of sick right now being spread
one attacks the lungs, the other sets up in your head.
