#2 Covered

The Lone Ranger

wore a mask

to cover his eyes

shelter his identity


Inevitably he would holler

Hi-Yo, Silver! Away!

Which no doubt caused

folks to notice


Bank robbers wear masks

to conceal their faces

though the guns quickly

indicate who they are


Trick or Treaters hide

behind chosen costumes

threatening at your door

for free sweet bounty


The Klan wore white hoods

announcing their intention

conveying fear and danger

to this day it still works


At the grocery store

unable to enjoy breathing

I wear a mask as it is

a matter of life and death
