Don't Hoard All the Toilet Paper!

Don't Hoard All the Toilet Paper!

A Poem by Bob B

Don't hoard all the toilet paper!

Leave some for the rest of us.

There's enough to go around,

So we have a right to make a fuss.


Don't go crazy buying masks.

Leave some for the medical staff

Who badly need protective gear.

Spread the word on their behalf.


Why keep hoarding bottled water?

Water from the tap is fine.

Get a water purifier

If yours is not a good as mine.


Disinfectant wipes? Come on!

Do you need them ALL for yourself?

Couldn't you just take your share

And leave a few for me on the shelf?


Paper towels? Purell? Also

Disappearing round the clock.

Do we have to ration items

To keep a few more things in stock?


Do not fill the ER, please,

Unless you have an emergency,

Because if I get seriously ill,

I want there to be a spot for me.


There are a few things you should hoard:

Try hoarding common sense,

Responsibility, and caution.

Knowledge is our best defense.


Corncobs? They are out of the question.

It would put my mind at ease

If everybody followed directions.

Do not hoard the TP, please!
