COVID 19, December 11th, 2020

By Gary Kay

A man in the ICU
puffed out
before his final breath:
I know I’m about to die
but no way in Hell it’s from Covid.

Three nurses shook their weary heads.
One grabbed a body bag from the top shelf.
Laid it on the bed,
then said:
“Be back in 15 minutes,
I’m dying for a cigarette.”

My name is Dr. Gary Kay. I am a retired professor who taught English and Reading for 30 Years. I live in Florida.
