People love dogs, and dogs have really helped people in the pandemic. The husky is a loyal friend to think about when you're feeling scared. 


How do you think I’m feeling?
Bored, and staring at my ceiling?
The outside is appealing, but
This mask still feels revealing.

I can make the compromise,
As long as you can empathize,
If we all could harmonize,
There’d be much less to sacrifice

Following the protocol
Walk to the testing hall
Play lots of Solitaire, try to keep us safe, that’s all
Lots of time in silence

Sights inside my eyelids
Appreciate the fact that we can all relate, it’s timeless
Gotta lotta guidelines
Clouding up my mind’s eye
All my plans got sidelined
But I’m still in this fight

Neighbors got their friends over
Walls moving in, closer
Stuck in a cell without bars
At least I got a spot for the car
Rather stay at home, cure this mental hangover
