Nell and Cecily's Cat Views the Pandemic
In the past I was sorely bereft
Every day when my humans had left.
But they presently shelter in place,
And their love fills our intimate space
When I settle in Cecily's lap,
Nell caresses my head till I nap.
Though they’d welcome a turnaround soon,
For their cat, the pandemic's a boon!
