Weird Balance

Another year, another booster,
Another reminder to stay healthy.
Three years into this pandemic,
And things are forever changed.
People continue to wear masks
Below their noses and coughing,
Annoys me to no end.
I don’t say anything, but internally
I am judging. I don’t care
If you don’t wear a mask,
I don’t usually wear a mask.
But if you wear one
Because you’re sick,
All I ask if that you wear
It over your nose too.
It’s a weird balance between
Returning to what we always knew
Until someone we know gets it.
And then it’s going through
The motions hoping
No one else will catch it.
