Pandemic Sam I Am (with apologies to Dr. Seuss)

Posted on July 3rd, 2020 by sheldon

Would you, would you wear it with a mouse? Would you, would you wear it to a coffee house?

People are getting better every week about wearing face masks in Downtown Campbell. Thank you for masking up and showing that you care about everyone's safety, but we keep seeing people who seem unsure when they're supposed to have it. To help clear things up, we invited none other than the great Dr. Seuss* to explain.


I am Sam. Pandemic Sam I am.
A mask I wear, I can, I can.

I will wear it in a shop
and wear it, wear it, without stop.
I am masked when on the street,
I am masked when on my feet.
I will wear it when placing orders,
but will not wear it when I eat.

I would wear it with a mouse,
and wear it to a coffee house.
I would wear it when I think,
But would not wear it when I drink.

I will wear it when I walk
and I will wear it when I talk
I will wear it when I’m close
and will wear it cross my nose

I cover my mouth when I’m in line
So my germs are mine, all mine
I wear my mask both here and there
I wear my mask most everywhere

Oh wear a mask I can, I can,
Because Pandemic Sam I am.**


*-A likely story. He said that was his name and he spoke in twisted rhymes so we didn't ask any questions.

**-Toddlers 2 years or younger do not have to be Pandemic Sam I Ams.
