Getting Out of Your Rut1
Has social distancing
put you in a rut.
You don't have to get out of the house
to get out of your rut,
all you have to do is get up
and chase the mouse
through the house.
You don't have a mouse
in your house!
In that case I suggest
you do what my mother
and grandmother always did
when they were in a rut:
