The alarm on the blackberrie,
A proud Canadian made device,
April 25, 2020, the morning to be devoted to a Zoom meeting, during the
Pandemic, of The Gathering of Baptists.
One glance at the overnight email almost caused me to
Shut the alarm off and put the comforter back over my head.
Certainly needed Comfort.
Couldn’t face the day ahead.
Groupon advertised a big bargain, a discounted
On-line Concealed Carry Weapons course.
Farewell to Nova Scotia.
No Restaurant Groupons, my favourite
No Hotel deals
Family travel to….
Not even casinos, or quick easy on-line
MBAs,or other fun stuff.
Instead Concealed Carry Weapons courses
Discounted to $19.95
A pro-active idea struck, to get me…
Out of bed: forward the Groupon advert to an investigative journalist
Saying “look into this please.”
Thanks, said the journalist, “learn how to
Shoot a gun from the comfort of your own home!”
Now that he had the big obscene pandemic fear bargain,
It was off my plate.
The day could be faced.
If I kept my fingers over my eyes.
