Take That Lock Down Gig (In Case You Missed It)

No ticket stress, no queueing at the gate or arena door

A concert like no other we have ever attended before

The front row of my kitchen, sat in my favourite chair

Glass of wine, singing loud, waving my arms in the air

Take that, reunited, straight from their home into mine

The Greatest Day of lock down, together they did Shine


Vintage Mark, up his ladder, in his garage full of tricks

King Howard wearing a crown, drumming with his sticks

Robbie over in Los Angeles, joking and fooling around

Gary in his studio, well, where else would he be found

Cups of tea all round, from Robbie mugs they drink up

Back For Good, but no lipstick marks on those coffee cups


Singing and playing together, yet so many miles apart

So many happy memories Flood back into my heart

Back to 1993, Pray dance moves and unicorns bring a smile

Never Forget walking on the travelator for yet another mile

Clap in time, to the final song, but this time it's not the end

There is an encore, of course, on which we could depend


Take that Rule The World, like stars they came out tonight

Lighting up the darkness of lock down to cheer and delight

Even during these uncertain times they continue to entertain

Everything changes but their lyrics and melodies will always remain

I really enjoyed the Take That gig too, nice childhood memories just what a certain generation needed.
You've summed it up perfectly in this poem Julie, and it's great that you got that inspiration from watching it 😊

I know this won't be everyones cup of tea, but the gig cheered me up, and inspired this poem.
