Odd to see gym members in masks
Obscenely hot breath builds up inside
occluding proper sight. Your task:
obey sanitary rules, don't downslide.
Daring athletes bench press weights
doing their best to keep sweat at bay.
Diligent, their focus is on heart rate.
Don't sit on machines using cell phones all day.
A sorry lack of cleansing stations
angers members who scramble for paper towels,
and cleaning solutions are rationed–
all of which causes language most foul.
Such a sorry state of affairs.
So many ill, plus horrific wild fires
spreading destruction, people in tears.
Safety comes first–situation dire.
