Undeterred

Undeterred, the Ad Men
as the appellation once was,
have come up with the apt slogan
for “uncertain times” like these:
WE’LL GET THROUGH THIS TOGETHER.
Cars, shoes, home insurance, celery, pants,
kitchen appliances; we will all get through this
together. Except, of course, those who don’t,
and those who do might in the end
not like all this togetherness.
Who knew my face looked so red on Zoom?
