Solitaire

Here I sit twiddling my thumbs
Planning moves when that notice comes.
Trusting that it will surely say “It’s ok”
“We’re back to normal beginning today.”

One gets tired of playing Solitaire,
But if you’re the only person there,
You have no choice but to go ahead
Or toss the cards, go read instead!

So, I twiddle away as I watch TV.
How much longer can it possibly be
Before we get back to where we were
And, I can meet with my friends once more?
