The irony of coronavirus

Scott Robert Shaw



They say life is filled with ironies. Perhaps has that never been more so than today. For example, gas prices are the lowest they have been in years, but we have no where to go. Plane tickets are as cheap as ever, but who wants to spend any time in a plane or an airport. Easter, the holiest of the seasons, is about to arrive, but churches can no longer welcome parishoners in person. Spring has arrived, and the birds are chirping, but we’re being told to stay inside. Many of us are due for a haircut, but the barbershops and salons are closed. Typically, this time of year, students are looking forward to summer break. Now that they have been sent home, they are missing the familiar surroundings of their school. Perhaps the greatest irony is that the one thing we need more than ever, a hug from a friend or loved one, is off limits for now. It is like the song said, it’s like 10,000 spoons when all you need is a knife. Isn’t it ironic, don’t you think?
