Two Metres…

Two Metres…

Two metres.

~

Or six feet, six point seven four inches,

if you’re old like me.

~

That most important of distances,

the one we all quote.

~

Keeps us alive,

helps us stay safe.

~

It’s doing a sterling job,

despite little warning,

that its time had come.

~

Two metres,

has stepped up to the plate.

~

The least we can do,

is pick it out from a crowd.

To know it when we see it,

and say thank you so much.

~

Don’t mistake it for its friend,

similar though they may be.

One metre, ninety,

is not quite enough.
