Driving myself insane

Oh, shit, took my eye off the ball
Distraction in today's world can mean it's all
 
Over, my friend, and that's causing me grief
Getting back to normal worry will be such a relief
 
A return to concentrating on the possible, 
My normal paranoid no longer is passable
 
Now it's think three steps ahead of the curve,
Got to concentrate on new rules to observe 
 
Think, think, think is the word of the day
But normal irrationals must be put away
 
As we face a global pandemic and need
To focus on that, it's a veritable worry stampede!
