Charli’s Carrot Ranch Prompt:

Escaping The Madness

woman in green and white stripe shirt covering her face with white mask

“It’s everywhere!
No, not the virus. We know that comes and goes as it pleases.
The topic… the hype… the space it takes up in our psyche is the part that enslaves us.
Of course I’m not mad about it. I’m just so very tired of it.
Every effort I make to escape from the dehumanizing effects and there they are jogging in sunshine wearing masks!
Every other poem and post… signs on doors… children not allowed to be themselves even though they’re thankfully not in any danger.
Sometimes all we can do is not to participate.
Camping anyone?”
