Wouldn’t it be lovely when, upon arriving
At the entrance to a local department store,
To there be greeted by puzzled customers,
Unable to enter during its prescribed hours.
As each person crossed the store’s threshold
They were “greeted” by, a fellow customer, who
It appears, just hired himself as store greeter
To ration the store’s touch-less hand sanitizer,
Demanding that each of his fellow customers
Apply sanitizer to his exacting descriptors,
Amid the consternation and embarrassment,
Of the staff and Security of the establishment.
Later on, perhaps from an inspired epiphany
He trotted out many unrequited contritions;
Choice compliments, to his fellow customers,
On the “beauty” of their mask/ face covers.
