 Covid Choir Cheer

Looking sharply ahead to the year 2020
Who could have foreseen we’d wear masks a plenty?
That Covid would march in on us during the night
And create an ongoing physical distance plight?
South West Seniors Choir our outreach is done,
Church basement is closed squelching all of our fun.
But intrepid Rhonda, pushing our limits,
Suggesting we Zoom: we could learn in minutes.
Consulting our family computer gurus,
Coordinating the multiple devices we use.
Learning the lingo – ‘gallery view’ and ‘unmute’.
Oh no, Rhonda doesn’t want videos to boot?
Jack will be there behind the scenes
Using technology plugged into adolescent genes.
Sing along to Gillian’s piano repertoire
And even strum your own guitar.
Add drums and horns and dancing feet,
The YouTube videos looking oh so sweet.
