Angry Old Drunken Man, who doesn’t Bathe

There was an old man

He tended to be angry, reminiscent of his old man

There was always drinking, recently alone
Sometimes a challenge, like espionage, keeping the boat afloat
Sometimes ugly, going too far, acting on impulse, trouble with how he responded

And then COVID-19 surfaced abruptly, like a submarine in peril
and it was easy not to shower
and easy not to shave
and easy to venture out in old dirty clothes and running togs

And there you have it

Which is a reason to encourage human contact
Maintain friendships

Continue to work

To savor social contact
