Coronavirus poem

Produce in the Time of Corona

If I squeeze a melon
I'm seen as a felon.

Touch an avocado
I'm a desperado.

To cough on a carrot -
No one would dare it.

When sweetness is sought
One develops the hunch
That grapes may not
Be pulled from the bunch

TS Eliot wonders about eating a peach,
Now we all ponder mortality
Ere we so much as reach.

Kudos for courage! Me, I wouldn't have invoked the ghost of TS!

My favourite market now has red arrows taped on the floor.
What rhymes with one-way aisles? Manly smiles?
