The Altiverse Feat. COVID-19

Somewhere else in the multiverse things are a little different;

everything from a month ago is happening on my calendar, as it was written,

Life is ‘normal’ as we knew it, and I’m sharing a meme that says “this mf spittin,”

But somewhere along the timeline we’re on, it seemed to veer off course into a neighboring string;

A different reality, where Costco lines are long,

the biggest city centers are shuttered, but somehow, the toilet paper industry is still going strong.

The pandemic is well-vetted, it took more than fake news to spread it,

and it might be a while before it’s deaded,

but I don’t mind this weird ass altiverse so far,

I just take each upside down question mark of a day as it comes,

Take care of myself, make sure there’s food in the house,

Stay calm/cool/check-in on my loved ones.

Eventually the road not taken will converge

and curve back into the main, at least until the next swerve,

and whether it’s 4-8 weeks or longer,

we will outlast it; our lives better, our love stronger. – RSM
