Cassandra talks about the pandemic

Cassandra talks about the pandemic

I made a good breakfast
omelet, home baked toast, coffee
but lunch seems too much work
the fresh of a new morning
ground down by news and poor prospects.

Cassandra was cursed by Apollo to be
a prophetess who would not be believed
all because she refused to love him.

If Cassandra came by
I might make lunch for us
not asking about the pandemic
unless she raised it
but even then
could I believe her?
