Cock A Doodle Do

entry picture


I'm feeling rather grumpy

(My cat is grumpy too)

They've taken everything I like

And it's just day 2


They've taken 'way my table tennis

Cafes also too

I've got no friends to mingle with

Don't know just what to do


The cinemas have all closed down

Can't watch no wide-screen flick

Can't munch and scatter popcorn round

Was grumpy, now feel sick


You might think I'm bit flippant

Flippant (grumpy too)

But, seriously it's hurting me

Thankyou for all your cock a doodle doing. I'm feeling much better now.

Seriously, light relief in tough times can be a wondrous tonic. I'm gonna have to keep my tonic-dispensing bottle topped up I can see.....

What's a rooster got to do with all this?

Yes I will take care of me Phil
Restrictions do make sense
But this upending of my lifestyle's
Making me bit tense

Hilarious - I'll let Thalia know. I hear she's in one of her blousy moods but self-isolating . Take care. A worrying time for all. P.👍

Virtual hugs are the thing of the now
Here in Albion where a lot are high-brow
and poetry is posh and just for the rich
and curtains are twitching and people snitch
I am reaching out to folk far and near
bombarding them with poetry to help quell their fear
Imposing my rants and my strong held views
simply means I care about everyone Don

AND Yea!
That includes YOU!
