Keep Safe

No more shaking hands.
Don't touch your face.
Never stand too close
In a crowded place.

A virus is amongst us.
It's roaming around our land.
It contaminates and does us harm
By the simple touch of our hands.

Dark days are fast approaching.
We have to be aware.
Hygiene is our only shield
To this demon who waits out there.

Our world is now at war
With an enemy that's unseen.
But we can beat the invader
If we all keep our hands squeaky clean.

Hi Vimla, we have to take extra care until there is a vaccine. It will be a long, hard road, but as in life, all things must pass.

Hi sister Cindy. These are worrying times. Keep safe.

Thank you, sister Beryl. It's amazing what with all the troubles in our world, it has taken a virus to unite us as one. Maybe it's a warning from God.

Excellent write brother John about the current situation we're in.
Not only us here in the UK but the whole world too.
All we can do is keep safe as you say and isolate to keep the bugs at bay.
