Masks by Andrew Evzona

Face Masks

Who would have thought that face masks

Would become a part of everyday attire

Prevention is better than a cure for sure

Just when will this Coronavirus expire?


Are we stuck with them forever and a day

With some exempt due to their health?

Happy faces and smiles are now invisible

We're all suffering irrespective of wealth


They come in different shapes and colours

Though are certainly not a fashion accessory

Let's hope there comes a time very soon

When face masks will just become history
