Let’s play cards with friends

Sit on the porch and chit chat

Ride bikes to the park

Put together a puzzle

Grab a leash and walk the dog

In rows on the window panes

Facing the outdoors

As if to tell passersby

While you can still do something

Just do what you can

And perhaps some other time
