Such anxiety, I’m not used to it,
How can televised football news footage
Bring on such feelings from so far away?
A short clip of fans on their way to match,
Leaves me on the verge of panic attack.
Juxtaposed young unmasked united fans,
With Covid Indian variant stats.
I don’t begrudge these guys much needed fun,
At their age I too would go to the game.
To vent pent up lockdown testosterone,
Is so completely understandable.
Loss of freedom can only be maintained,
For so long before boiling point is reached.
So why am I in a paranoid state?
