Quaranta means forty in the Italian speech,
Which makes me write this poem, understandably, a reach.
In forty-four minutes get twice the “Rick and Morty.”
It’s your third point in tennis, if you happen to be sporty.
The gang of thieves was just huge that ran with Ali Baba;
The Titanic got the warning from that other ship, Mesaba. (So, the message was sent at 9:40pm, warning the crew about the ice, but no one was monitoring communications at that time. The message never made it to the bridge.)
quarantina- forty days
We’re in the Holy season of Lent,
And the number of days of fasting that Jesus spent.
If we have to stay inside for that particular stretch,
I’ll write more poems like this, or better yet, sketch.
