The Easy Stay Away

Aunt Mildred, that homely
fat stupid sister of
little Johnny’s mother
with her slobbering lips
plastered with lipstick
that used to slide over
his cheek and her big fat arms
that used to pick him up and
squeeze the living daylights
out of him is not allowed
to do it anymore,
thanks to the Covid-19
social distancing policy.
What a relief!
Now little Johnny can
stay at home and relax
and not even think of
being dragged over there
until the Corona virus
blows over.
Then he will have to
think of a real good
excuse not to go.
