Mask Up or Else ...

By Ndaba Sibanda

Mask Up or Else ...

a teen got fed up
with looking out
of the window

and down he glided
and out he dashed
without a face mask

he broke Covid 19
protocols, touched
his face twice, thrice

once inside the shop
he wandered through
its aisles till he was told

by an old store worker
to wear a face mask
or to get the hell out

he tried to justify stuff
I got bored with staring
out of the window at home

It shouldn't be an issue
that I'm not wearing a mask
I don't even wear an under ...

but the worker would have
none of it, get the hell out
or else, I'll call the cops!
