"MY STORY" I have become a serial slouch...

I have become a serial slouch
With most of my day adhered to the couch.
The couch is unhappy, understandably so
It's sick of my butt and how big it will grow.
The food in the freezer is screaming for air
With stuff packed so tightly I don't know what's where.
Today, I made meatloaf and mixed in some wine.
Just knowing it's in there made it taste just fine.
When I go for a walk, I zig zag and scoot
So I won't get too close to another old coot!
When covid-19 first came on the scene,
I made myself crazy trying to keep the place clean.
I'm so done with that now that the dust is my friend.
So Dust Bunnies for Easter may be the new trend.
The TV's exhausted. It's been on overload.
It's acting real crazy like it wants to explode.
My MAN-nequin rarely gets up from his chair.
If it weren't for the channel change, I wouldn't know he
was there.
The State Stores are shut down and that's senior
abuse!
I'd call Social Services but that would be of no use.
Those projects I planned while I'm stuck here at home,
I haven't done one but write this silly old poem.

Are you from Pennsylvania by chance? The reference to “state stores”

Hi (kind of) neighbor! Figured as I think only us PA’ers know what a state store is. (The Giant near me is still selling beer and wine).
