I see adversity as a challenge,

It’s one we can easily manage.

Truly it’s not a sort of strife,

To be perfectly honest, it’s just part of life.

Be creative and try out something new,

You might well be surprised by the view.

Persevere in seeking tough solutions,

We might even find ways to stop pollution.

Less haste & less waste and more calm.

Might just be the perfect balm.

Perseverance we master on lonely days

With many great books in which to gaze.

Take pride in surviving the Corona virus.

Keep masked & calm & ignore those who fuss.
