Single In Covid 19

-

This is not the time for love

Because we are not aloud to date

Wouldn't get to consummate a relationship right now

With the distancing laws and all

Singles everywhere

__are being forced to stay single

So how can love begin?

What kind of relationship has no sex?

Not even a kiss?

Or a held hand?

We can't even hug anybody!

For crying out loud

__we have to stay 6 feet apart

____and wear masks the rest of the year

______even after quarantine!

But, whatever

Take the hope out of all our lives

Life goes on

But only if we survive

If I still loved anybody, at all

It wouldn't help me any

'Twould only be a big tease

A BIG tasty tease!

Am I making myself clear, God?

Or are you just going to keep killing people?

How'mI gonna know know what's wrong with me

Without a woman to tell me?

Last time I checked

A woman wasn't put on my lease with me

So I have to die alone

Because this pandemic is the new norm'

Well, that just makes me wanna die

It wasn't enough

__that you had to force me into schizophrenia

You had to force an end of my love-life now

Wow

And I'm supposed to worship you?

I don't get it

Go fuck yourself, God

Seriously

And they say I "don't make any sense"
