Locally folks are soliciting new limericks to dissipate the loneliness of mid-pandemic times. The more I tried not to think about it, the more limerick-y notions intruded on the mushy brain. Cheers and enjoy — or reciprocate/retaliate!

There once was a beauty who’d bask
On beaches, for hours, in damask,
Who now’s seen the light
And exemplary delight
In sporting her virus-proof mask.
