A Poem by Desert Knave

Written on a dare ... and for Day Three of National Poetry Month 2022

It was the great pandemic of twenty-twenty
And nothing needed was too plenty
Toilet paper became so rare
It sold for like a buck a square
And sanitizer by the pack
Came from the guy who sold the crack
But I knew I could not go on
The day the corn dogs all were gone

No corn dogs? Say it ain't so! :) I liked the rhyming and the humor here. We have to find reasons to laugh. Great one, Jim. Lydi**
