Would I wear it….

Don’t often use the bus these days but overheard a conversation at the stop. The ladies were talking about crocheting face masks….was itching to enquire about the holes, but managed not to

Would I wear it….

Well I know I have to wear it, will do so if I must
But mine keeps slipping down, so I have to readjust
If tight it hurts my ears, also irritates my nose
Another thing that’s vital, it must match up with clothes
Though it does save on my lipstick, oft liberally applied
What’s the use of donning it, when mouth cannot be spied
Thought the glamour puss at bus stop, hers is a waste of space
And she still needs to put her lippy on…….. as it is made of lace

About the author

1695 Up Votes
I have always written poetry but when my husband died suddenly I used it as a kind of therapy. I don’t usually share these unless I feel they will help someone in distress. The ones I share are mostly humorous intended to bring a smile in what I feel can be a very lonely world... I have written four booklets and now a Corona chronicles which is just twelve poems writ while I am in jail...oh sorry I meant lockdown. Am on my way for a second booklet.. Trying to make folk smile and take a minutes release from these difficult times helps me forget my sight problems..

Much to my surprise Glenys I found an image of a crocheted face mask! I am unsure how effective they would be??? 😉
