Thanks Keith,

I wanted something simple and non-polemical. Seems that there's more than enough hot air being spouted out there at present. As for being tempted - well that's the nature of temptation isn't it? Everyone's drawn to something that's potentially harmful to them; we long for the things that can make life seem bearable, but sometimes they come at a price.

Very best

brief in content but worthy of much consideration. Lock down or self isolation are both unpleasant when our personal freedoms are restricted but this spell of good weather somehow ameliorates our incarceration. "Lower you guard", I take to mean a temptation to get out despite the cost or would the back garden suffice.

I like this poem, very topical.
Thank you for this
