It Started With A Cough

entry picture

It started with a cough then my temperature began to rise

Finding it hard to breathe and shivers are running down my spine

It’s a deadly new virus that goes by the name of Corona Covid-19

Now the world is in lockdown unprecedented in modern time

The government says stay at home and isolate to save lives

Keep your social distance and only go out for food or exercise

Another three weeks before we get an update on the pandemic

Probably best to comply although cabin fever is on the rise

On the streets and avenues folk wear masks Chinese style

Checked out my local store and the shelves were half bare

Pasta toilet rolls bread soup and medication in great demand

The food situation seems to have settled down so don’t despair

The NHS is doing its best to deal with an ever mounting toll

Frontline workers and care staff they will soldier relentlessly on

Thursday nights on the stroke of eight the people cheer and clap

Captain Tom Moore £25 million plus raised and still going strong

It started with a cough I didn’t think it would get this bad

It started with a cough when this is done all over we’ll be glad
