Corona Pt. 30

Happy Groundhog Day! 
I couldn't sleep last night. 
I woke up at 2am
Ready to defend the world against coronavirus
Feeling responsible for everyone, 
A heavy burden to bear in the dark
For someone as powerless as me. 

Last week I woke up one day before 6am
And opened up my email in bed--
Like I shouldn't. 
I swear the front page headlines
Appearing in my daily news email
Were the same as the day before. 
I thought I must be caught in a 
Groundhog Day scenario. 

Time has moved forward since then
To today, which is Groundhog Day,
Thankfully.
