At Low Ebb

Ted's feeling quite depressed today.
Old friends much loved have moved away.
Pandemic is the reason why
They left without Ta Ta, Goodbye,
No shake of paws, no pecks on cheeks,
No see-you-in-so-many-weeks,
No hugs, no farewell face-to-face
Or Let's meet up at half-way place.
Oh, wretched Covid, you're to blame.
Will living ever be the same?
