April Writing Contest Entry
By Karen Steinhoff
Mitch and Mort went to the court
To play a little game.
The court was closed to their dismay
Their lives were not the same.
Then Mitch abruptly turned to Mort,
While keeping social distance,
“We need to keep all others safe,”
Which triggered Mort’s insistence:
“I need to play!” “I need to play!”
Mort shouted ever stronger.
Mitch just sighed and softly said,
“Resist a little longer.”
