Spring of Worry


Husband's boss man calls
Saying sent you home to work
Not pulling your eight hours
You are fired

Worrying about paying bills
Putting food on the table
Taking care of our daughter
Surviving the crisis

Second job becomes main job
Going form part time to full time EMT
Working twice as hard
To provide for us

On top of all this
Mom has surgery for broken leg
Can't go see her
Alone in the hospital

Vacation plans cancelled
Hamilton tickets wasted
Daughter can't make friends
All because of Covid-19
