I know the weakest link defines the chain,
in terms of strength (and what’s of more import
than hold if chains are judged?) The links will strain
when pull’s applied, until the poor falls short.
Just so, as we now start to socialize,
developing our distance protocols
and meeting out of doors, we organize
our separate plates and places, and it falls
to whom is the most cautious, careful guest,
to set the masking manners for the rest.
