The New Normal

Help control the virus on our decent down the peak

Stay alert, the new normal, the keywords of the week


Anticipation grew around the map of our pathway out

confusing news filled us all with disappointing doubt


To mask or not to mask? now there lies a question

still debatable if they provide any medical protection


Return to work when able, keeping a two metre distance

so many new rules and regulations now in existence


Choose a single friend and pick a sport you like to play

go outdoors to exercise, for more than one hour a day


Family, friend or stranger, one, two or in a crowd?

is a chance meeting in the street or town allowed?


Sunbathe in the park, order a Saturday night takeaway

garden centres reopen, a lovely way to spend your day


Take a journey to wherever, however long it may take

there and back in a day, definitely not a weekend break


Once visitors were welcomed to share our heavenly place

now rejected and refused from our haven, our safe space


Strangers judged by photos, posts on Twitter and Facebook

looks can be deceptive, not always as guilty as they look


I am unsure about the future, how normal will our lives be?

for now, this brave new world, seems a little alien to me
